Talismans bring power to the beholder, whilst amulets ward off evil spirits. Talismans are usually objects or inscriptions of great power and positive energy which is duly passed to its possessor. Famous talismans include Aladdin's magic lamp, King Arthur's sword Excalibur, a magician's magic hat or a Wizard's magic wand. These talisman's each have the protective power and positive energy of God, nature, magic or the owner's sheer strength of belief. Talismans are worn to instil confidence, belief and power.

Traditionally amulets were made from crystals such as garnet to protect sailors from drowning or aquamarine to banish fear but nowadays an amulet can be just about anything as long as the possessor believes it has the strength to ward off illness, negative energy and evil spirits. Famous amulets include garlic or a crucifix to ward off vampires, Runes, Coal, Horseshoes and lucky bamboo or coins. Amulets are worn like a good luck charm.

All physical objects absorb the energy of the people who use them, so I don't think there's much difference between these things.

What you said is exactly right. By the way, if you really feel the energy of objects, you should study what is psychometry and how it works. Believe me, I also used to not believe that things can have their own energy and can be felt, but it turns out this is not a myth, but a reality. There are specialists who are able to read information from an object. This is very interesting.
