𓁿 What is the evil eye?
The evil eye is the age-old belief that you can be cursed by jealousy and misfortune will come your way. This spiteful gaze can be given consciously or unconsciously, and often by people close to you. Around 4OO B.C., Greeks, Assyrians and Romans made glass eyes to protect the evil eye. These amulets would not only provide protection but also reflect the evil eye back to the curser. They were called “Nazar,” “Mati” or (ironically) “Evil Eyes.” Today we find this amulet mostly in Greece and Turkey, but the evil eye is believed in many more areas than you think! Around 60% of all world cultures believe in some form of the Evil Eye.
