A very handsome antique box, which measures approximately 6 inches wide, that was masterfully crafted by obviously highly skilled hands. It is heavy, very solid and sturdy feeling, with seams still aligned even after 200+ years. The silver metal has a striking natural patina, and it appears the 3 dimensional cross on the front may have once been plated in gold.
The underside has the words made un France carved by hand
What we are about to share with you today, is something that is inexplicably world rocking. With this piece, what you are getting is something that is extremely unique, important, and uncommonly Powerful. The history behind its significance is that which legends are born from. The power it holds, let me just say, is of a metaphysical form that is unlike anything else we have ever come across in all our years doing what we do best. It possesses an essence of its own in a way we have never experienced before with ANY item.
This piece currently belongs to someone, who, lets just say, is of a very prestigious and secretive position. I cannot divulge anything more about this individual other than we have rehomed pieces commissioned from them in the past, and now, we have once again been personally commissioned to rehome another very select set of items from them.
They have very carefully selected the prices for these items. Part of the Magick they hold ensures the ones destined for them to obtain them, regardless of their current finances.
Unquestionably one of the most powerful and important pieces that has ever graced our presence, this originates from the Delphic maestro, the arcane Doyen, the mysteriously brilliant adept, Count de Saint-Germain.
"Le Comte de Saint-Germain is a man who was never born, who will never die, and who knows everything." – Voltairea
The Count de Saint-Germain is a man shrouded in legend, mystery, and conspiracy; a puzzling and enigmatic figure of many places and many names.
Though wealthy, brilliant, eloquent, and accomplished, familiar with most of the crowned heads of Europe, his birth, origins, education, and wealth are unknown.
No date or place can be assigned to his birth, and his recorded death is a fabrication.
Ceaselessly moving among the important capitals of the day, his activities are largely hidden.
The vast span of time in which Saint-Germain has been known, and the level at which he works suggest that he is not bounded by any single locale or period.
For over 500 years, every sighting and encounter documented of him always describes him the same – physically, in demeanor, dress, intelligence, rhetoric, and quirks.
“Though Possessing great wealth, he lives in the greatest simplicity; he knows everything, and shows an uprightness, a goodness of soul, worthy of admiration.”
He appears to be about 50 years old (however, he is far older than that) of olive skin and Aquilline features, black hair and a dimpled chin, he is of medium build, with eyes that are "soft and penetrating" (according to Comtesse d'Adhemar) and magnificent teeth. His nails and hands are always soft and perfectly groomed (save for a small scar thanks to an incident with de Gergy's embroidery needle, but that's another story). Those perfectly groomed hands are ambidextrous – to the point he could write with both hands simultaneously.
“The Great Illuminist, Rosicrucian and Freemason who termed himself the Comte de St.-Germain is without question the most baffling personality of modern history. His name was so nearly a synonym of mystery that the enigma of his true identity was as insolvable to his contemporaries as it has been to later investigators. No one questioned the Comte’s noble birth or illustrious estate. His whole personality bore the indelible stamp of gentle breeding. The grace and dignity that characterized his conduct, together with his perfect composure in every situation, attested the innate refinement and culture of one accustomed to high station.”
He is witty, humorous, entertaining, and exceedingly wealthy and has never been in debt. His personal jewelry is fabulous, including a pair of shoe buckles worth 200,000 francs. Even invitations to his sumptuous dinners were sent on cards encrusted with precious stones. All who have ever met him are deeply impressed by his gracious, refined nature, his brilliant and engaging conversation, and his richly animated and vividly detailed stories of times long ago, which, is a vast span of time.
The whole of aristocratic and courtly Europe became intoxicated with the fascination of this man, so much so, that it became a mark of distinction and prestige to have some sort of encounter with him!
There's a lot more to Saint-Germain than his distinguished air and charming wit though…
Saint-Germain's knowledge of languages is phenomenal, speaking English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese fluently and without an accent. He is also expertly versed in Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Chinese and Arabic.
He can play the violin and piano beautifully, and compose music as well. He is a phenomenal singer, painter, author and critic whose talents rival the most highly regarded artists of any time. His paintings possess a life of their own, as he had a secret way of producing lustrous and realistic colors, a secret which he never revealed, and his colors have never been able to be duplicated.
He is a Medical Advisor, inventor and entrepreneur of textile dyes and manufacturing, including Turkey Red, a rich, costly, extremely labor intensive Red that does not fade nor bleed, which he learned in his travels to the near east. Turkey red textiles produced 300 years ago are still just as vibrant and gorgeous as they were then, and are highly sought after and coveted by textile collectors to this day.
An adventurer to say the least, he has travelled across the world, from the far east and near east, Africa, America, and of course pretty much everywhere in Europe.
In the 18th century, he became a close friend of King Louis XV, even taking residence briefly at Chateau de Chambord, and became a diplomat. There are stories about an affair between him and Madame de Pompadour. He gave her an agate box, which, when brought near a fire, revealed a picture of a shepherdess with her flock, but that's another story for another time…... He's never confirmed nor denied an affair, but, the Count is just like that with all stories and legends of him, never confirming or denying any fact or tall tale, as it keeps his true “activities” all the more elusive and hidden.
Napoleon III was so interested in the "Undying Count" that he had a special commission put together to collect information on the Count, that was stationed at the Hotel de Ville. Soon after, a mysterious fire broke out, consuming the files Napoleon's commission had collected.
A chemist, alchemist and occultist, his knowledge, wisdom, and abilities are well attested. Nicknamed the "Prince of Diamonds", as he once removed a flaw from one of Louis XV's largest diamonds. Casanova witnessed Saint-Germain take a silver sixty-centime coin taken from his own pocket, and transmute it into pure gold in about two minutes.
He is a Freemason and Templar, and has visited nearly every European Lodge and Temple in his Europe, allowing himself to be seen occasionally, as has been documented. He is also suspected of being identical with the last Grand Master of the Knights of Malta.
He has written a number of texts for the Freemasons and the Knights Templar, and others as well, such as the Asiatic Brothers, the Order of Strict Observance (which he helped to found), and Rosicrucian groups. In the 18th Century, Count de Saint-Germain wrote what has been attributed as the rarest of occult manuscripts, 'La Très Sainte Trinosophie, The Most Holy Trinosophia.
For as many secrets as this enigmatic figure has, one thing that he never hides is the fact that he is very old, and knows ancient secrets, including immortality.
By all accounts of him, regardless of how many years had passed since last seeing him, his age always appears unchanged.
He has very peculiar eating habits, in that, he's never seen eating or drinking, save for a rare sip of wine. Even at his ritzy dinner parties, he ate nothing,
Legends report that he is immortal, and he is. He found The Philosopher's Stone, the Elixir Vitae, the great Kundalini, Azoth, which is what brings us to this Magnificent item you see here.
In the 5th/6th centuries BC when in the Babylon, the Count received the Staff of Moses from one of Moses' great-grandsons during the time of Cyrus the Great. This isn't just any ol' staff, it is the Staff of Moses, the Serpent of Brass, the staff that provided sustenance, that sprung water from rock, the staff that gave life back to the snake bitten Israelites and won battle by holding it up, the staff that defeated the Egyptians and parted the waters, the staff that is amongst the ten miraculous objects that were created at twilight on the sixth day of creation.
It was this staff which Guided Count Saint-Germain in his true Immortality. The staff guided him into true Immortality of all of his bodies, guiding him to perfection, Kundalini, Azoth, finding the Philosopher's Stone. That is an entire story in of itself (literally, the Trinosophia) which we will get into in another listing.
This box was birthed from the Brazen Serpent Staff of Moses and the Power over Nature which Saint-Germain obtained with the Philosopher's Stone. It is a living vault conceived with an Essence of its own, which breathes in the Magick of anything which Saint-Germain places within it, forever becoming part of it's Essence through the raw Magick of God – that which powered the creation of all things. It is not of one singular nature, for it is everything. Its Nature is that of Completeness, beyond Duality.
The Count conceived this incredible piece, not for himself, not for greed, desire, or indulgence, for, those coarse bases he had purified from his entire being long ago to obtain the Philosopher's Stone. He created this, for who he could foresee would come to have it – his Templar brethren and not,! so that they may find the Philosopher's Stone one day, and the elixir vitae.
His primordial Adam Awareness birthed this from the Divine Tool of God – it is impossible for it to have been created with impure motivations, or to ever be in the possession of those who intend to abuse it.
This means that, the only ones that will ever have this, have been chosen to have it by God himself. All that this box holds within it, all that it is, will be revealed to you when, where, and how you are meant to discover them.
The Powers which Saint-Germain wove into this box are of the brightest Illuminations, the deepest of Wisdom, the widest expression of all that is of Immortality, and all of the secrets that made the Count de Saint-Germain who he still is to this day, and so, so much more.
I have been shown facets of what makes this piece so mind blowingly profound, what makes it so truly special and sacred, but these are things that I myself cannot reveal, for part of possessing this, being chosen for it, is unlocking the mysteries this precious box holds. What I can say though without interfering with the spiritual experiences the One who is destined for this, is that, it will bring you anything you pray for.
This is about as rare as they get! There will not be another opportunity within our lifetime to obtain this. According to the individual who owns this, the one who purchases it will keep it, and before it is time for them to leave their current bodies, they will ensure their precious items are left with someone trusted.
