11 May Amulets
An amulet is an object that is typically worn on one’s person, and has the magical power to protect its holder– either to protect them in general or to protect them from some specific thing. Amulets are different from talismans because a talisman can have magical powers other than protection. Amulets are sometimes confused with pendants– small aesthetic objects that hang from necklaces. Any given pendant may indeed be an amulet, but so may any other object which purports to protect its holder from danger.
Potential amulets include gems, especially engraved gems, statues, coins, drawings, pendants, rings, plant parts, animal parts, and even written words in the form of a magical spell or incantation to repel evil or bad luck.
Magic scrolls are found to be used in various cultures, and artifacts of scrolls with magical inscriptions have been found in the middle east, Europe, and the far east.
