I just want to say that this piece is a pre-emptive magic and will not work on people who are already diagnosed with a terminal illness. This piece holds a magic that allows you to cast a white light magic over the ones you love to keep them safe from illness and disease. Now, I cannot say that this 100% guarantees them safety, but I can say that we have used this piece in testing and so far, so good. It holds a magic that will virtually eliminate the threat of any type of spiritual attack such as possession, spell casting, or just all around negative and dark energy. When it comes to the physical stuff it tends to be a little bit more involved. That's why I don't want to say 100%, because there's always that slight chance. However, this magic is pretty powerful!
