The Turkish Evil Eye or the Nazar Boncugu, which literally means the "evil eye bead", is actually a stone bead, which is worn to protect oneself from evil looks ("stink eye"). The stone is an amalgamation of molten glass, iron, copper, water and salt. This particular combination of minerals and metals is believed to provide a shield from the forces of evil. It is believed that the Nazar Boncugu deflects the negative energy that is being directed towards a person onto itself, thus dispersing its powers. 

The evil eye is still hand crafted using primitive means, by highly skilled glass workers who are carrying on a 3000 year old craft.
