Description
A smoothly polished flat onyx stone (a) in a red velour carrying case (b) lined with satin. The stone has a finger depression carved into one side. Inside of the box the satin is marked with “Calmulet” in gold writing. The stone is also accompanied by a small pamphlet, which fits inside the box, and explains how the stone is used. The pamphlet reads:“As the ancient Chinese pondered the weighty problems of their time, or contemplated deep philosphies, it was their practice to stroke the smooth polished surface of valuable jade, a habit they found soothing to tired minds and tense nerves.The Egyptians and Greeks of long ago wore amulets, usually suspended from the neck, as a protection from the evil eye. It was a recognized good luck charm. Even the very religious Moslums believed in the power of the amulet.Now the amulet is once more being sought as a potential calmer of jangled nerves. The CALMULET is designed for this purpose. Hold it in the palm of your hand . . . it is especially shaped to nestle there, inviting nervous fingers to gently rub it’s smooth satiny surface.CALMULET a finely cut lustrous onyx will become your personal talisman.”
