Triple Spiral Wax Seal
The triple spiral or triskele is a Celtic and pre-Celtic symbol found on Irish Mesolithic and Neolithic sites.

Believed by many people to be an ancient symbol of pre-Celtic and Celtic beliefs, the triple spiral appears in various forms in pre-Celtic and Celtic art, with the earliest examples having been carved on pre-Celtic stone monuments, and later examples found in the Celtic Christian illuminated manuscripts of Insular art. The triple spiral was possibly the precursor to the later triskele design found in the manuscripts.

As Christianity came to the forefront in Ireland before the 5th century, AD, the triskele took on new meaning, as a symbol of the Trinity (i.e., Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and, therefore, also a symbol of eternity. Its popularity continues today as a decorative symbol of faith for Christians of Celtic descent around the world.

The triple spiral is also one of the main symbols of Celtic Reconstructionist Paganism, often standing for the "three realms" - Land, Sea, and Sky, or for one of some deities who are described in the lore as "threefold" or triadic. The god Manannán is probably most often the one symbolized by the triskele, though some also use it for the goddess Brighid. Some Celtic-inspired Wiccans also use the triple spiral symbol, most often to represent the concept of the triple goddess.

Instructions for use:

The easiest way to use these sealing wax bars is to melt them with a long-handled lighter. If you use a candle, you will get black charred residue on the wax, which will discolor your wax seal.

To prepare you wax seal stamp for use, spray cooking oil spray on a soft, clean, cloth. Then rub the wax seal stamp on the cloth before use. Make sure that there are no fibers from the cloth on the seal before use. This way the wax won't stick to the seal. When you use the seal, wait until the wax cools a little bit, then press the seal and count to ten before removing.
