The Scourge of Andima
An extremely rare find in the frontier, Glimmer Scarabs are fabulous and sought after creatures known for their literally glimmering carapaces. Often called a walking gem, glimmer scarabs excrete a thick sap-like substance that hardens into a lustrous, crystalline enamel on their bodies. This same substance helps keep their sandy burrows sturdy.
They are relatively unknown beyond their appearance, as they seem impossible to breed in captivity and die fairly easily. Their shells remain crystallized, and are then used in jewelry, but live ones fetch a decent price, especially by those hoping to find a way to grow them.
