Seal of Solomon
The Seal of Solomon (or Ring of Solomon; Arabic : خاتم سليمان Khātam Sulaymān) is the signet ring attributed to King Solomon in medieval Arabic tradition, from which it developed in Islamic and Jewish mysticism and in Western occultism . It is the predecessor of the Star of David , which became the symbol of the Jewish people in modern times.
It was often depicted in either a pentagram or hexagram shape. This ring variously gave Solomon the power to command demons , jinn (genies) and spirits, or to speak with animals. Due to the proverbial wisdom of Solomon, his signet ring, or its supposed design, it came to be seen as an amulet or talisman, or a symbol or character in medieval and Renaissance-era magic, occultism, and alchemy.
