A spirit control of William Stainton Moses, supposed to be
a member of the Mystic Band that delivered occult teaching in
Moses’s scripts. ‘‘Magus’’ did not disclose his name on Earth,
but he said that he lived 4,000 years ago and belonged to an
ancient African wonder-working brotherhood. In the nineteenth
book of the Moses scripts, a topaz is mentioned as the
material counterpart of a spiritual jewel worn by ‘‘Magus,’’
which was to be given to Stainton Moses to help him to see visions.
The stone, set in a ring, was reportedly dropped from the
air in Stainton Moses’s bedroom.
