It has become a 'beside the point' since it set me on my search into the subject of the Letters/Paths/elements and planets.~Rosanne
JMD is I think interested in the history of freemasonry, if it is indeed masonic, maybe JMD will know something about it? And yes I would love to see a picture (s) of it

I'd really like to see a picture as well.

I have seen a variety of variously called Masonic cubes and Masonic 'balls' (that open out as though a cube, each with engraved pyramidal faces).

The cube would first and foremost be related to the perfect ashlar, but am curious indeed as to the provenance of the cube you have - which may have formed part of a degree I am not familiar with, or have overlooked when reading through various grades.

I agree with kwaw's comments about the ordering of the Hebrew double letters being taken by Christine Payne-Towler as too strongly fixed as though earliest. Personally, I suspect that early planetary correlations would have followed the Ptolema´c order as simply the dominant version at in the likely time of the development (irrespective as to which likely dating is preferred) of the Sefer Yetzirah.

[PS - I forgot to add an image to the Masonic Ball I mention, in case you are unfamiliar with it: here's a great presentation on the Phoenix Masonry site]

Thanks jmd, for the link. Maybe it is not masonic at all, but a planet aid to memory? It is beautiful anyway and I will try to get a photo. I have explained it all in the thread 'Can't see the wood for the Trees' in Kabalah forum. ~Rosanne
