Thank you for your comment. Many Libyan amulets have either star of David or a five point star. Some also have the Cross or the crescent.

These signs as well as other decorative symbols were very distinctive for ethnic jewelry in Libya mostly for good luck

Very beautiful! Can somebody explain the star on top?
