BERBER necklace with qabbalah - "this amber necklace carries a silver pendant, chiselled with the diagram of the qabbalah. In short: it is a mystique technique, using algebric formulas to reach God. In this case used as an amulet against evil. In place of the numbers (as it is here) they can also use letters, with the same value."
