There are so many different areas to cover when dealing with the history of Magick. I must say though that there is one thing that arouses me about Magick and that is the charms and talismans that accompany the craft.
The word talisman comes from French talisman , and which comes from the ancient Greek telesma (τέλεσμα), meaning “completion, religious rite, payment”, ultimately from the verb teleō (τελέω), “I complete, perform a rite”.

Where there is Talismans there are also amulets that plays it part in Magick today. An amulet , also known as a good luck charm, is an object believed to confer protection upon its possessor. The word “amulet” comes from the Latin word amuletum, which Pliny’s Natural History describes as “an object that protects a person from trouble”. More about Amulets

Use them for good, and create the life you deserve.
