One of history’s most mysterious artifacts is King Solomon’s Lapis Lazuli Ring. This lapis ring has been mentioned for thousands of years in many Christian, Jewish and also Islamic legends. It is known by many names, including The Ring of the Fisherman, the Seal of Solomon and also the Ring of Aandaleeb. Here I will narrate the story of King Solomon’s Lapis Lazuli Ring with a couple of intriguing theories.
“King Salomon, the mightiest and wisest ruler of the earth that ever was or shall be. Wealthy beyond measure. King Solomon was powerful and full of wisdom”. He commanded the wind, birds, animals, flowers and also both men and jinn. All were servants to him.
His true name was Jedidiah. The “friend of God” but later named Shelomo, Solomon, the “King of Peace”, because of the peace that prevailed during the greater part of his reign.
Genie In a Temple
It is said that during the building of the Temple, he noticed that someone was stealing precious gems from his rooms. He recognized that no ordinary thief could have done these deeds. “Some evil spirit causes this mischief”, he thought.
Solomon prayed fervently to God to deliver the wicked spirit into his hands for punishment. At once his prayer was answered. The Archangel Michael appeared before the King. He gave the King a Lapis Lazuli ring that enabled him to control legions of demons. It gave him the power to summon genies, to speak with animals and also flowers. It gave him incredible powers over almost anything. The ring was made of gold inset with a seal of engraved Lapis Lazuli.
Michael said, “Take this ring, O Solomon King, son of David, the gift which the Lord God hath sent unto thee. Wear this ring, and all the demons of the earth, both male and female, thou wilt command.”
Medieval Arabic writers related that the ring was engraved by God and was given directly from heaven. Many claim that the pentalpha, or pentacle, the ancient sign of sorcery, was engraved on the ring.
Some say the Lapis Lazuli stone was cut and set in the form of an eight-rayed star. On it was engraved the hexagon seal, and within that the four letters of the ineffable name of God.
Armed with the ring, King Solomon commanded the thief spirit to appear. He wore the ring an the mid-finger of the right hand. He pointed it at the foot of his high throne and said, “By the power of the seal of the one God, I command thee, troublesome spirit, to come forth”. The demon appeared instantly with his hands full of jewels stolen from the royal vaults.
The demon fell to his knee ad prostrated himself before the king. Solomon burned the seal into the neck of the demon Ornias as a brand of his sovereignty and the Jinni from that moment did his bidding. He was giving the task of cutting stones for the building of the temple.
Other Jinns causing trouble in the realm also came forward. They were, Onoskelis, Asmodeus, Tephros, Seven female spirits, Rabdos and also Envy. They were also branded with the seal of the Lapis Lazuli ring.
The Bible never speaks of Solomon uses spirits to build his Temple. Then answer me this, “What technology was used to build the foundation of the Temple, which is 5 times the size of the Acropolis. Its stones were joined without cement and in some cases were 100-150 tons, being the biggest 570 tons.
One of the various designs of the seal as a Hexagram seems to arise from a medieval Arab tradition. The name “Solomon’s seal” was given to the hexagram engraved on the bottom of drinking cups in Arab Tradition.
Other stories of this ring said that it was made of brass and iron and Lapis Lazuli.
Hexagrams appear mostly in Jewish esoteric literature. Some authors have written that the tradition of Solomon’s Seal may possibly predate Islam and date to early Rabbinical esoteric tradition.
The Hexagram or “Star of David”, which became a symbol of Judaism in the modern period and was placed on the flag of Israel in 1948.
According to Wikipedia the Moroccan symbols on the flag and are a tribute to Solomon’s Seal.
They have used the Hexagram on their different objects representing their country including a Morrocan 4 falus coin dating back to BC 1873.
Hundreds of objects have this seal in multiple religions and beliefs. These are only a couple of examples of the use of Salomon’s Seal hexagram.
The Vatican Secret
One theory is that the ring worn by the pope is actually a replica of King Solomon’s ring but with a different seal. Every Pope swears on oath on the ring. Upon the death or resignation of the Pope, the ring shall be destroyed.
According to a Christian legend, Solomon’s Lapis Lazuli ring is also believed to be our only weapon of salvation against the apocalypse. It is believed it was hidden long ago with its mighty powers that cast away demons and evil spirits. The legend continues captivating us with this incredible conclusion; King Solomon’s Lapis Lazuli Ring is being protected deep inside the realms of the Vatican. It is at the reach of the hands of the Pope, the only person believed to be worthy enough to use the ring for its intended power.
What Do You Think
Did the ring of King Solomon really exist? Did King Solomon exist? It has been proven by historians that Solomon was not a fictional character of fable or myth. According to the Bible, Solomon was a fabulously wealthy and wise King of Israel and also son of David. The Talmud refers to Solomon also as one of the 48 prophets. In the Qur’an, he is considered a major prophet as well as the king of ancient Israel and also son of David, and Muslims generally refer to him by the Arabic variant Sulayman, son of David.
We don’t know for sure how did Salomon’s Ring looked like. Maybe it looked like one of these…
So what do you think? There is enough proof in every mayor religion that King Solomon (970-931 B.C) existed. So why not believe that this powerful Lapis Lazuli Ring also existed? I know I believe it…
