The Masonic Trowel

... to spread the cement of brotherly love and affection, that cement which unites us into one sacred band or society of brothers, among whom no contention should ever exist, but that noble emulation of who can best work or best agree ...

JEWELS OF SCOTTISH RITES


Jewels for the degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite:

The Jewel of the 4th degree:

A small ivory key with a black Z on the wards. Out of all the relations of life grow duties, as naturally grow and as undeniably, as the leaves grow upon the trees.

The Jewel of the 5th degree:

The compasses, opened to 60 on a graduated arc. To learn and to do! - this is the soul's work here below. The soul grows truly as an oak grows.

The Jewel of the 6th degree:

A triple delta superimposed on a equilateral triangle of gold. The center designs are the astrological symbols for Mercury, the Moon and the Sun. The jewel is derived from the Pythagorean Tetractys. Be zealous, faithful, disinterested and benevolent, and act the peacemaker.

The Jewel of the 7th degree:

A gold key which unlocks the ceremonial box. Every wrong done by one man to another, whether it affect his person, his property, his happiness, or his reputation, is an offense against the law of justice.

The Jewel of the 8th degree:

A delta made of gold. On the front, the Samarian characters mean "nobles" and on the rear, "Achad" - or our only God, chief and source of all. In this world, there will always be wrongs to forgive, suffering to alleviate and sorrow asking for sympathy.

The Jewel of the 15th degree:

The 1st degree of the Chapter of the Rose Croix. Three triangles of gold surround two crossed swords, pointing upward, their hilts resting on the inner triangle. The three triangles symbolize liberty, equality, and fraternity. They also symbolize law, order and subordination. The crossed swords symbolize truth and justice.

One of the Jewels of the 21st degree:

A silver shield represents the full moon, and the hand holding the sword is surrounded by the Latin phrase "Fiat Justitia, Ruat Coleum" meaning "Let there be justice, though the Heavens fall"

The second Jewel of the 21st degree:

A single arrow, pointing down, suspended from the collar. Though evil may prosper for a time, its downfall is certain. Those under its sway are counseled to have patience and faith.

The Jewel of the 32nd degree:

You are here to think, if you can think; and to learn, if you can learn
