GEMSTONE NECKLACE WITH MAGIC SQUARE
The Magic Square
The Magic Square is seen frequently in traditional metalwork, and is regarded as an amulet.
Number 1 stands for God, number 2 represents the jinns, number 3 stands for wealth and riches, number 4 stands for protection and guardianship. The meaning of number 5 is a secret. Number 6 is devoted to increasing one’s rank or status, number 7 represents life, number 8 represents stabilisation, and number 9 represents movement.
The numbers are arranged in such a way that when they are added up in any straight line the total always comes up to 15. The 1 and 5 are then added together to give a new number, 6, which represents an increase in rank and status.
