An amulet is an object believed to be endowed with certain magical or protective qualities. The stones, originally worn as amulets in Uruk as early as the fourth millennium BC. continue to be used today by Muslims. In the Islamic world, the wearing of semi-precious or precious stones engraved with Quranic prayers, names of God and calligraphic texts is widespread.
It is believed that such a stone, which carries divine words, will protect its owner from all kinds of troubles and dangers or will endow him with certain benefits. Such amulet stones contain a wide variety of inscriptions, from religious texts, numbers and astrological signs to magical symbols and fonts and intended to be carried in a pocket, wrapped in cloth, as pendants, mounted on rings or directly hung in homes for protection. Some are also used as seals or a personal sign.
