In Palestine there was a parallel theoretical development that showed a similar concern with the opposing qualities of fire and water and so with the possible employment of the Hexagram to symbolize their union.

One feature of this ancient science that appears to have surfaced alike in the teachings of Maria Hebraea and the Sefer Yetzirah is a peculiar joint definition of a fire above and water below, which in the later alchemical tradition was identified with the figure of the hexagram and given a Hebrew origin in the names by which it was known, Solomon’s Seal and the Shield of David.
