It is a Chinese charm pendant with Bagua symbols on the reverse. http://primaltrek.com/loopcharms.html

The obverse has writing that resemble Daoist charm examples. Stacked characters comprise each column of verse. Gary Ashkenazy's summary of understanding these verses: "If magic writing were easy to understand then anyone could have the power to control the spirits."  :001_smile:

Perhaps comparing your charm pendant will provide enough information to surmise the gist of the verses. Alternatively you could message Gary through his profile on this forum or at Primal Trek.
