中國人相信玉可以避邪保身,土耳其人也相信這種說法,土耳其傳統的避邪物─藍色惡魔眼Evil Eye,土耳其文是Nazar boncuğu (邪魔-小珠), 遍及土耳其, 類似我們的護身符, ㄧ般土耳其人會隨身攜帶,是很具當地特色的紀念品。

土耳其人相信,被邪惡之神釘上了會有厄運上身,因此許多人隨時隨地帶著一種玻璃製,模仿邪惡之神眼睛的藍色眼狀護身符,用以吸引邪惡之神的注意,逃避厄運。

護身符的材質並不特殊,多由普通玻璃製成,因為土耳其人深信,當惡魔上身,一旦被「藍色惡魔眼」所吸引,只要玻璃破碎,厄運即可因此化除,不需要太珍貴的材質。最重要的是,要像真的眼睛一樣透明才能吸引惡魔,而且還得「會破」才能破除厄運。祈福的原理和中國的玉碎人安相同,但在護身符的選擇上卻較中國人更「務實」。

「藍色惡魔眼」造型很多,如鑲在不同形狀的外殼中或做成水滴形、愛心形。釣飾、風鈴、手鍊、項鍊都是很普遍的惡魔眼造型。近年由於觀光客的原因,也開始作不同顏色或用其他材質製成。土耳其到處都有賣,非常廉價。
至於為什麼「惡魔眼」是藍色的,則源自土耳其人對藍色的偏好。

土耳其四面環海,當地人自認為沿岸的海水顏色就像土耳其石一樣舉世僅有,對藍色有一股莫名的偏好,土耳其石因此被視為土耳其的代表石。

土耳其人家一般都會放大大的「藍色惡魔眼」,因為那不僅有傳統的意義,也十分美觀。
