What is a Amulet?
The word "amulet" comes from the Latin amuletum. The earliest extant use of the term is in Pliny's "Natural History", meaning "an object that protects a person from trouble". An amulet can be any object but its most important characteristic is its alleged power to protect its owner from danger or harm.
Amulets are different from talismans as a talisman is believed to bring luck or some other benefit, though it can offer protection as well.
Every zodiacal sign corresponds to a gem that acts as an amulet, but these stones vary according to different traditions.
Perfumes and essences also serve the purposes of attraction or repulsion. Popular legends often attributed magical powers to certain unusual objects, such as a baby's caul or a rabbit's foot; possession of these items allegedly endowed their magical abilities upon their owners.
In addition to protection against supernatural powers, amulets are also used for protection against other people. For example, soldiers and those involved in other dangerous activities may use talismans to increase their luck. Carlist soldiers wore a medal of the Sacred Heart of Jesus with the inscription "Detente bala" ("Stop, bullet!").
Amulets may incorporate gems with specific significance or engravings, statues, coins, drawings, pendants, rings, bells, etc.
Today amulets can be found among people of every nation and social status. They can be displayed in jewelry, artisan fairs, museums, shops, homes, vehicles, just about anywhere.
