Evil Eye Talisman
The evil eye is a malicious glare given to someone out of spite, malice or envy, which brings misfortune, suffering or just general bad luck to the recipient of the look. The belief is that the malevolent look holds such power that it is able to bring harm to the person that it's aimed at.
The evil eye's meaning stems from the concept that people who do well and achieve great success in some way attract envy from the people around them. The look or glare given by the envious people manifests into a curse that brings misfortune to the receiver, who is usually unaware of the malicious gaze upon them. Most cultures believe that jealousy is the main source of the evil eye.
The evil eye symbol is also often depicted in the centre of the Hamsa Hand, which is a very common symbol of protection and good fortune.
The use of the evil eye symbol on amulets is thought to reflect the evil glare back onto the person giving it. The most popular choice of evil eye amulet is a cobalt blue color, which provides karma and fate protection, the evil eye meaning can vary slightly depending on the color of the bead. Different colors represent protection in specific areas: light blue offers general protection, dark green protects happiness, red beads protect courage and transparent beads protect your clarity and mindfulness.
