What is a circumpunct?

“[the circumpunct] is the ancient philosophical symbol for unity and the beginning of creation…it symbolizes the secret of creation and contains the idea of cosmic consciousness which experiences itself and learns from itself by observation and experience of the micro and the macro, and vice versa. The ancient alchemists used this symbol to represent Gold because Gold represents the divine and the eternal, since Gold is not subject to annihilation and entropy.” — adapted from KA Jewelry
