Description
The widget eye was believed by the ancient Egyptians to be the most powerful protection against evil. Ever vigilant against bad luck and misfortune, the symbolic eye of the god Horus was worn by king and peasant alike. Though the eye was sometimes fashioned in gold and precious stones, it was thought to be at its most powerful when colored blue. During Egypt's Golden Age, some long-forgotten person wore this lovely amulet for luck. Whoever wears it today in its golden frame will surely benefit from its ancient magic as well. - (FJ.2905)
