This amulet auto-identifies when worn.

This amulet is dangerous. It is the main reason you shouldn't put on amulets without knowing their BUC status. If cursed, you can pray (assuming it is safe) to have it destroyed. If you find a noncursed amulet of strangulation, though, it can be easily identified and taken off.
Eating this amulet chokes you to death immediately, with a 1/20 chance of survival, providing you are not unbreathing.
If you do manage to get the amulet off, your strength is still abused.
