When it comes to warding off mystic malevolent forces of the world, the “Evil Eye” charm is one of the most ubiquitous in the world, first recorded by the Mesopotamians about 5,000 years ago and figured in Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu societies. For thousand of years this symbol has maintained its steady hold on the human imagination.
The Evil Eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent or envious gaze, and the talisman is used to protect against this kind of evil energy. It stares back at the world to keep you safe from harm. Many people in different cultures use it as a lucky charm.
The traditional color of the evil eye charm is blue. Some say the blue color is a reminder of water, and the way plants prosper and grow with fresh, cool water. Others relate it to the color of the sky, and that it symbolizes truth, and therefore provides direct protection from the karma of bad spirits, and calls upon good luck to watch over you.
