nazar or evil eye stone is an amulet that is meant to protect against
the evil eye. Old Turkish tradition before Islam. In Turkey, it is
ubiquitous in offices and homes, in jewellery, including for babies, on
vehicles, doors, horses and even cell phones.
It is usually seen
in the form of a flattened bead or hanging ornament, made by hand from
coloured glass, and used as a necklace, or attached to bracelets or
anklets. Typically it is composed of concentric circles or droplet
shapes – from inside out: dark blue (or black), white, light blue, and
black (occasionally a yellow/gold edge circle) – and is sometimes
referred to as blue eyeEvil eye

Nazars, charms used to ward off the evil eye.
The evil eye is a look that is believed by many cultures to be able to cause injury or bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike. The term also refers to the power attributed to certain persons of inflicting injury or bad luck by such an envious or ill-wishing look. The evil eye is usually given to others who remain unaware.
The "evil eye" is also known in Arabic as ʿayn al-ḥasūd (عين الحسود), in Hebrew as ʿayn ha-rʿa (עין הרע), in Greek as "το μάτι," and in Spanish as mal de ojo.
The idea expressed by the term causes many cultures to pursue protective measures against it. The concept and its significance vary widely among different cultures, primarily the Middle East. The idea appears several times in translations (Tirgumim) of the Old Testament. It was a widely extended belief among many Mediterranean and Asian tribes and cultures. Charms and decorations featuring the eye are a common sight across Greece and Turkey and have become a popular choice of souvenir with tourists.Rosary (Tesbih)
only in Islam, but also in many other religions, prayer beads have
played an important role. In the past, the most sought after rosaries or
tesbih, as Muslim rosaries are called, were made by Istanbul craftsmen
and sold to buyers throughout the world. They were made from almost
every imaginable material.
best tesbih makers became famous for their skill at carving the beads.
Drilling the holes through them is one of the most difficult parts, the
finer the hole, the more skill being required. Tesbih beads are made
using a small lathe, simple but. Although the best tesbih have beads of
equal size, some have beads graduated in size, threaded from largest to
smallest. In the past they were always strung on silk thread, but today
nylon thread dyed to the correct colour is sometimes used instead. In
Ottoman times rock crystal beads were preferred in summer for their
coolness to the touch, and for the play of light diffracted by the
facets. These had silver tassels.
only Muslims, but Roman Catholics, Orthodox Christians, Jews,
Buddhists, and Hindu Brahmanists use prayer beads. Catholic rosaries
with 64 beads and a crucifix are part of the clerical garb. Although
Islamic prayer beads usually have either 99 or 33 beads, mystic sects
sometimes used 500 or 1000 bead tesbih with very large beads. PAYMENT
