What is an Enchanted Charm?

A magic or enchanted charm is a word or object imbued with supernatural power. The word charm comes from the Latin word carmen which means song; certain charms were actually chants intended to put a curse someone (1). Another type of charm is an amulet which is an ornament or a piece of jewelry worn for protection.
