    An old Berber silver talisman known as the Southern Cross or -Boghdod- from the Moroccan pre-Sahara Desert. The granulation work suggests some Mauritanian influence.

It is a powerful talisman for protection as it benefits from the power of  the number five ( four directions and the central element pointing above).
