A master amulet was carved into a lump of soft clay after being cut, typically in stone. When the clay was sufficiently hardened through baking or firing, it was used to create the mold for amulets. The master amulet could create any mold, and each mold could generate any charm. The mold was prepared by rolling a small piece of faience around a string. The paste solidified and the rope burnt away during the firing of the mold, leaving a hole that allowed the amulet to be strung on a cord. Although there were many different hues of faience amulets, the ancient Egyptians preferred turquoise and blue tones.

Over Egypt's 3,000-year history, amulets have evolved. Hawks, hippopotami, and lions were typical Old Kingdom (2686–2181 B.C.) animals that you will explore during Egypt cultural tours. Amulets were frequently fashioned as bodily parts later, during the First Intermediate period (2181–2055 B.C. ): arms, feet, hearts, and eyes. The SCARAB beetle, one of ancient Egypt's most well-known amulets, was created during the Middle Kingdom and is still worn today.
