Tree of Life
According to old belief amulets and talismans are tools to trigger changes in life. In order to achieve this talismans transfer positive powers while amulets grant protection by absorbing negative energies. Old grimoires contain instructions on how to build amulets and talismans in a way so that they can use positive planetary energies to fulfil their purpose.
The biblical king Solomon established the Jewish secret doctrine of Kabbalah and his wisdom is the foundation of all western magic until today. 3000 years ago he wrote the magic book "Key of Solomon" - also this talisman is built according to these magic instructions.
Druids, Babylonians, Hebrews, Vikings, Greeks, Chinese and many other cultures worshipped trees because of their magic nature and knew the legend of the Tree of Life very well. In the Jewish doctrine Kabbalah the Tree of Life is also called Sephirot and is depicted as a diagram showing the interconnection of all divine properties. Its structure arranges pairs of opposition found in the divine creation in a way that they are compensated in the centre of the diagram. The Sephirot is the centre of the Kabbalistic numerology and his name simply means "digit". In many other cultures the Tree of Life is also an important symbol connecting the elements earth and sky with each other. According to the bible in Genesis 2:9 God created the Tree of Life in the middle of the Garden of Eden close to the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. The mystic plant Tree of Life was always reckoned as a symbol of growth, healing and wisdom in old age.
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 and copper. The brass, a copper zinc alloy, is responsible for the yellow golden parts of this piece of jewelry and the copper for the red golden ones. With the exception of gold copper is the only colored metal and just like silver and gold it is classified as a precious metal. Due to its softness and malleableness copper is particularly suitable for the jewelry production.
