The Evil Eye bead is a prominent symbol in Turkish and many other cultures, and is highly protective. Evil Eye is also called nazar. Evil Eye beads reflect ill intent and jealousy from the 'evil eye' back to the person thinking of it, hence protecting the wearer. They also bring good luck and are often found hanging in houses, workplaces and cars. They're also often given as a gift to loved ones. The earliest known evidence of evil eye beads goes back to ancient Greece and Rome, where it was believed that evil eye would hurt people who were praised too much. Philosophers like Plato and Hesiod warned against the dangers of the evil eye. Ancient Egyptians also believed in the evil eye, and would paint the Eye of Horus on their belongings to protect themselves from the evil eye. Egyptian sailors also painted eyes on their ships to protect themselves during their voyages.
