A friend of mine used to use this symbol, but i dont know what it was from, or what it was for. I cannot ask him because Ive not seen him in years and don't know where he went. I have drawn it out here for you.


If you know what it could mean, please tell me. Thank you.

Alchemical Sigils

Post  monkeyblood on Mon Apr 21, 2008 6:38 pm

It reminds me of the sigils used for the fixed stars....but when I looked for it I only had the sigils for 15 and it wasnt there....the upsidedown triangle is the Rosicrucian,medieval and modern sigil for the element of water....
Two places to look would be the astrologer Chris Warnock...he makes magical talismans so his knowledge would be pretty extensive and if you can get your hands on a copy of Fred Getting's 'Dictionary of Hermetic,occult and alchemical Sigils' (Arkana 1988) that might have it there.....
Hope you find it.....

monkeyblood is right about the inverted triangle. Unfortunately, I doubt we'll be able to help very much. Some sigil's are customized, and some aren't. I haven't seen this sigil before, so it might be a personal/customized sigil.

Umm, let's see, do you have any other information? We may be able to provide more help if you can provide more information.

It looks like the combination of the alchemical symbol for water and a modified version of an electrical "ground." Who knows what it means. What are you trying to do with it (or what did he do with it?)

I found a couple similar images here:
http://www.symbols.com/ ,
but I doubt if they relate to your symbol... Sad



A sign used to denote talc in early chemistry and late alchemy.
In Arabic this mineral was called telk.
In Germany it is called Marienglas.



A sign from the chemistry of the
eighteenth century meaning rubber.

The cross section of the image may also represent the Mystic Cross of the Great Hierophant. One of the explanations for this cross, Ive read, is the central column is the channel for the Unique Idea which passes through the three planes.
