Product Description

A hexagram is a six-pointed geometric star figure, the compound of two equilateral triangles. The intersection is a regular hexagon.

It is used in many historical, religious and cultural contexts, for example in Jewish identity, Hinduism, Occultism, Freemasonry, and Islam.

The Star of David , known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David, is a generally recognized symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism.

In Christianity it is often called the star of creation. Christian kabbalists associate it with love, healing and Jesus Christ as God the Son.

A six-point interlocking triangles has been used for thousands of years as an indication a sword was made, and "proved," in the Damascus area of the Middle East. Still today, it is a required "proved" mark on all official UK and U.S. military swords though the blades themselves no longer come from the Middle East.

In alchemy, the two triangles represent the reconciliation of the opposites of fire and water. Non-Jewish Kabbalah interprets the hexagram to mean the divine union of male and female energy, where the male is represented by the upper triangle and the female by the lower one.

So this symbol may mean many different things to different people!
