The drop-shaped example is inscribed on the central flower with sura al-saff, (LXI), pt. v.13. The leaves below have invocations to God, Muhammmad and 'Ali. The border contains sura al-kafirun (CIX) and sura al-ikhlas (CXII) complete.
The truncated rectangular talisman contains the Throne Verse from the Qur'an, sura al-baqara, (II), v.255 written in an unusual layout. One part of this contains traces of gold in the engraved lettering. It is probable that the entire talisman was originally inlaid with gold.
