Cimaruta, in Italian, means "Sprig of Rue," and the rue amulet is one of Italy's oldest cultural objects. The amulets, which are made of silver, depict a rue sprig with various small symbols in its branches, most commonly keys, crescent moons, daggers, stars, and flowers. The cimaruta of today is evolved from ancient Etruscan amulets; historical uses are as protective charms agains malevoloent magic, witchcraft, and the evil eye, especially for infants.

There are many different varriations of the symbol, this is just one of the possible desgins for it.
