This is an amulet designed specifically to repel the evil eye. Originating in Turkey, the Nazar is found in shops frequented by tourists. It is a pretty piece of circular blue glass, with additional dollops of glass set in a concentric circle of blue and white to represent the eye. Traditionally, the Nazar is hung in windows or doors ways to repel undesirable influences.
