The Knot of Isis (Tyet Symbol)

Always made of red stone , the Knot of goddess Isis (also known as the Tyet Symbol) was a stylized representation of the goddess' genitals . Almost every woman carried this amulet in order to be granted all of Isis’ wisdom and knowledge . When Isis was shown clutching the Papyrus Scepter , the amulet would contain a green stone and served as a fertility charm . This amulet was usually placed on the throat or on the chest in row of gods .
