The Evil Eye (aka. Nazar) : Magical Protection
The Evil Eye is a Huge Turkish Tradition but is a Nearly Worldwide Belief.
Turkish people believe that with the evil eye amulet you will be protected and all the bad energy will be directed to the amulet and it will brake. No bad energy will reach you since you are protected with the amulet of Evil Eye (aka. Nazar).
Have you just had a new child? Bought a new car? Built a new office building? Worried that your "friends" and others are filled with envy about your good fortune?
The protection of the Turkish amulet is used for anything new or likely to attract praise. The belief is that even well-intentioned compliments include a conscious or unconscious dose of envy and resentment. The bead reflects the evil intent back to the onlooker. It somewhat resembles an eye and it is said the typical blue color is a factor in protecting the user. Read more about Evil Eye.
