Of a blue as vivid as the Egyptian sky, this ancient amulet was used to protect its wearer from harm. Throughout Egyptian history, such talismans were worn by king and commoner alike to frighten away evil spirits. This tradition continues even today: it is not unusual in Egypt to find children and animals alike adorned with blue beads. We do not know who might have worn this benevolent eye during the height of Egypt's glory, but it seems certain that its magic will work well for whoever chooses it today. - (FJ.3000)
