In Thai folklore, the turtle is a symbol of good fortune as they walk only forward and onward, never look or move backward. Turtles are considered a symbol for longevity and prosperity. Thai turtle amulets are called Phra Taoreuan amulets because the Thai word “reuan” means “erasing”; it is believed these amulets could help the wearer erase bad luck and gain victory. This amulet type is popular for merchants and people in the legal professions. Another popular belief, the Thai word “reuan” also means house or building where it will bring good fortune to the householders.
