I have received through the mail a small red scorpion ring.

The tiny red scorpion is encased in acrylic. It is boxed from China.

I understand they are gathered in the Chinese provinces of Guargxi, Yunnan, Guizhou and others.

Can you tell me something about the history of such a scorpion?

Thank you.
