Sodium chloride (salt) has often been used to represent wisdom, e.g in the Bible, salt also came to symbolise purity, perfection, wisdom, hospitality, durability, and fidelity. Romans gave salt and thus wisdom to all newborns. The design features the chemical compound diagram (circles & lines)


Silver is connected to the Moon. You can see the symbol within the design. It is one of the most versatile metals, one of the 3 base metals in Alchemy. It is associated with philosophical traits of intuition, self-reflection and inner wisdom. It is a feminine metal, a symbol of purity and is connected to the goddesses and spirits. Its energies include divination, healing, protection, emotion, love, wisdom, dreams, luck and wealth. It is symbolic of attributes such as vision, clarity, awareness, focus, persistence and subtle strength.




Mercury Associated with the planet of the same name. The alchemists considered it one of the 3 principal substances on Earth, along with salt and sulphur. It is associated with intelligence, perception, communication.
