This large munachi charm love amulet measures 1-3/4 inch tall (~44mm), about 1 inch wide (25mm) and nearly 1/2 thick (11mm). It has a 1/4 inch diameter wire loop at the top. It is hand-crafted from a dark, charcoal gray (black) terra-cotta with detailed white markings. The back is flat and the couple is facing forward.
This munachi was made in Bolivia, and has a metal hanging loop making it suitable for use in jewelry. No two munachis are alike although they are similar in size and design.
The munachi amulet is used to cast sexual or love spells. Munachi is a Quechuan word that combines “muna” which is to desire or to love with “chi” meaning to cause to happen. Traditionally, a love spell is cast by wrapping a hair from each of the lovers around the necks of the munachi and burying it in front of the door of the couple’s home. We think it would be also great incorporated into a piece of sacred jewelry which can either be kept or given to your significant other to help them resist temptation when you are apart.
Some believe that these Pachamama amulets can also be activated by burial in the ground (Pachamama is Mother Earth and a high deity in the Bolivian Quechuan culture.)
