Title: Tcherot (Tereout Tan Idmarden)

Material: Tribal silver People: Tuareg Country: Niger/Algeria Description: This Tcherot, or amulet, is considered one of the most important jewelry items worn by brides in the Ahaggar region of Algeria. It is made up of several attached triangular cases, whose interiors traditionally contain a piece of paper with written verses of the Koran, an old magic formula known and prepared by the Marabout, or even sand from the Desert. This Tcherot is decorated with triangular-bobbles on its bottom section and is crowned with a protective 'Khomessa' amulet at the top. The more aesthetic the Tcherot or amulet would be, the greater its power to ward off evil and to bring good luck and good fortune to its wearer. It is strung on a 23" leather cord. Dimensions: 10" height x 8 1/2" width x 1/4" - 1/2" depth
