According to old belief amulets and talismans are tools to trigger changes in life. Old grimoires contain instructions on how to build these charms in a way so that they can use positive planetary energies to fulfil their purpose. For this talismans transfer positive powers while amulets grant protection by absorbing negative energies.
The biblical king Solomon established the Jewish secret doctrine of Kabbalah and wrote the magic book "Key of Solomon" 3000 years ago - also this talisman is built according to these magic instructions. The wisdom of Solomon until today is the foundation of all western magic.
According to former belief this sun charm is said to bring wealth, health, contentment and luck to the life of its wearer - this is thought to be possible by the positive powers and energies of the sun. In the centre of this medieval charm the life-giving sun is shown and the astrological glyphs of the planets of our solar system are arranged around it. According to the magic doctrine Kabbalah the earthly sun transforms the divine light into a visible element. During this transformation the unity of the divine light is split into the two earthly principles of light and fire - while fire is the destructive side of the divine light, the light itself is its heavenly property. This duality is also the reason why God often is described as pure light and at the same time can manifest himself as a burning thorn bush in the material world. According to the Kabbalah the sun pertains to the ninth sphere of the tree of life Sephirot and is called Yesod or "foundation of life".
Among other things medieval knights of the 16th century wore this pendant not only as jewelry but also as an aid to achieve changes in their lives. This magic talisman was very popular because according to old belief the correct choice of symbols and materials was everything needed for this kabbalalistic pendant to work and therefore it was not necessary to charge it.
This pendant is made of brass which is a copper zinc alloys with 10 - 45% zinc. Beautiful pieces of jewelry which do not tarnish over time can be produced from this yellow golden material. Brass is a popular material for jewelry production, because it is very malleable and also has a good corrosion resistance even after long wearing.
