Wards off the evil eye - beautiful color too
"Superstitions are very much part of Turkish and Islamic culture, most of them pre-dating the advent of Islam. The concept of the evil eye appears in Roman mosaics and takes the form of a blue eye, because foreigners, who were more likely to have blue eyes, were more likely to stare, thereby contravening local convention, and, by admiring the children or possessions of their hosts, accidentally casting the evil eye of envy on them."
