The Turkish eye is widely known by the name of “nazar” and it is a protective amulet representing a shape of a flat drop inside of which there is an eye.

It is usually made by hand and is formed by different circles containing shades of blue ranging from dark to light, until reaching the white that we find in the center of the amulet.
