These are both correct English: the choice just depends on what you want to say. But is a necklace or talisman involved in the story as it is usually told?

Be aware that what you have written is a noun phrase and not a full sentence.

A magic necklace is a talisman. The sentence should be, for example:


"This papyrus scroll proves the...gold through the power of a talisman(a talisman is magical, so no need to describe it as such)/magic necklace."
