Magical Amulets! Ooooh!

Jewelry, especially amulets, and charms had magical and protective powers. Whoa, I better get me some amulets right away, but not those type of powers, they were used for warding off evil. Carnelian, turquoise, and lapis lazuli brought luck. Also, amulets were made in many forms: scarabs, and the ankh (symbols of eternal life), animals, gods and godesses, crowns and the Eye of the Horus (symbol of wholeness).
