A nice word for a flock of goldfinches

Did you know that a flock of goldfinches is actually called a charm of goldfinches? Charm, that’s a lovely word, charm. It also has a nice meaning. Actually, that’s got me thinking of lucky charms, the Egyptians  used to carry stone scarab  beetles  in their pockets to bring good luck. Do you know about any other lucky charms? If so I’d love to know about them, so tell me what you find brings luck in a comment if you can. thanks.
