All medical identification jewelry is features the Caduceus symbol. This symbol is internationally recognized as the designation for medical information. Medical ID bracelets and pendants employ this mark to suggest medical personal that person, who wear medical ID tags has some special health condition, which is marked on the tag. We thought it would be interesting for our customers to learn about roots of the commonly recognized Caduceus symbol.

 A Caduceus (kerykeion in Greek) is a staff with two snakes wrapped around it. It was originally an ancient astrological symbol of commerce and is associated with the Greek god Hermes, the messenger for the gods, an astrologer, healer, and creator of magical incantations, protector of merchants and thieves. It was originally a herald's staff, sometimes with wings, with two white ribbons attached. The ribbons eventually evolved into snakes in the figure-eight shape. The number eight is important to the practitioners of judicial astrology.
This symbol is nearly universal, found in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and India, where it is always a symbol of harmony and balance.

In the seventh century, the Caduceus came to be associated with a precursor of medicine, based on the Hermetic astrological principles of using the planets and stars to heal the sick. The Caduceus is used interchangeably with the Rod of Asclepius, especially in the United States. Historically, the two astrological symbols had distinct meanings in alchemical and astrological principles. Occasionally the Caduceus may be combined with a DNA double-helix, which the intertwined snakes coincidentally resemble.

The symbol's origins are thought to date to as early as 2600 BC in Mesopotamia, and there are several references to a caduceus-like symbol in the Bible, namely in Numbers 21:4-9, and 2 Kings 18:4. During the Exodus, Moses was instructed by God to fashion a pole upon which he was to position a serpent made of brass; when looked upon, this Nehushtan, as it was called in Hebrew, would spare the lives of the Israelites stricken by venomous snake bites. This symbol was apparently worshiped by the Hebrew people until the reign of Hezekiah as described in 2 Kings 18:4.

It was used by the astrologer priests in the Eleusinian Mysteries of ancient Greece, and has been associated with the Gnostic Corpus Hermeticum and Kundalini Yoga, where it is thought to be a symbolic representation of the "subtle" nerve channels the "ida", "pingala", and "sushumna" described in yogic kundalini physiology.
