The Abracadabra Amulet dates all the way back to the second century, to a Roman physician who took care of the emperor Caracalla. It was his prescription for malaria patients and sufferers of other diseases, and it worked like this:

The patient wears an amulet with the word inscribed on it in the shape of an upside-down triangle. The top – or longest - line is the full word. The line directly below it is the word with the last letter omitted. The next line has the last two letters omitted; the line below that, the next three letters, and so on until it reaches the bottom – or point – of the triangle and only the first letter remains.

Wearing the amulet, the patient would recite the word in the same way, dropping one more letter from the end with each repetition. It was believed that as the word diminished, so would the disease.

This amulet pendant takes the shape of a hexagon. The word 'abracadabra' is written in a cryptic language, because its exact origin is unknown - whether Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, Greek or whatever. The spaces around the abracadabra triangle are oxidized to make the triangle stand out, and an added sun, moon and stars give it a magical touch.

This is a two-sided pendant; both sides are identical.
