Fatima Hand Necklace with Onyx
Beautiful necklace with the symbol of Fatima’s hand made with white metal and onyx
This is a very pretty symbol, consisting of a hand with five fingers. A very interesting feature is that the ring and index fingers are shorter than the heart, but have the same size between them.
The meaning of the amulet when the hand is up indicates power, strength and blessing. It is also used to protect against the evil eye. Instead, when it is down, it is used with "the eye of Fatima," which attracts luck and love.
The origin of the hand of Fatima dates back to 244 A.D. Recent research has discovered this motif in the frescoes of the Dura Europos Synagogue in Syria.
Everything indicates that this symbol was used as a magical amulet by the Carthaginians in the first century. In North Africa, it had a very special bond with the goddess Tanit, and her cult was related to fertility and the moon.
From North Africa, this amulet became part of the culture of the Maghreb and Berbers. These peoples associated him with strength, power and authority.
From there, the Arab and Jewish cultures adopted the hand of Fatima as an independent symbol. Even so, there are certain affinities between God's hand of Western cultures and the Islamic amulet.
