The Golden Scarab Beetle is a magical object featured in Disney's Aladdin.
It is a golden magic beetle that leads to the Cave of Wonders. Somehow, the evil sorcerer Jafar was able to obtain one of the two halves of the scarab. Jafar hired the thief Gazeem to acquire the other half for him.
The scarab is made into two halves. When they are put together, they fly to the location of the Cave of Wonders. Before it reaches the cave the scarab splits apart and buries itself in the sand. The two halves help to form the cave's eyes. After the cave disappears, the scarab is left in the sand. Iago picks up the two halves and hands them back to Jafar.
