The Golden Dawn Rose Cross Lamen is a magical badge is worn by the adept. It is based on the Rosicrucian symbolism of the Red Rose and the Cross of Gold. This lamen is a complete synthesis of the masculine, positive, or rainbow (King Scale) of color attributions, which is also called “the Scale of the King.” This badge synthesizes a variety of ideas, representing in a single emblem the Great Work itself—the harmonious reconciliation in one symbol of diverse and apparently contradictory concepts — the reconciliation of divinity and humanity. It is a highly important symbol to be worn over the heart during every important operation. It is a glyph, in one sense, of the Higher Genius to whose knowledge and conversation the student is eternally aspiring. In the RR et AC it is described as the Key of Sigils and Rituals.
