This feng shui symbol is hung at the entrance, balcony or even the bedroom to protect the home or workplace from negative energies. It attracts prosperity and peace. It is believed that the blue color of the stone, actually holds the real shielding power and the ability to absorb negative energy. In Turkey, people often insert the evil eye bead in the foundation of a modern office or workplace. This benevolent eye keeps the evil eye away and reflects the dark effects of an envious eye. If the bead ever cracks or shatters, this means it has absorbed a powerful evil eye. If this happens, the hanging should be immediately replaced.
