Religious symbol

From PathfinderWiki
A literal holy symbol of Sarenrae.

A religious symbol is both a unique figurative representation of a deity, and a literal symbol of that god that is owned or worn by their followers.1 Symbols of benign or neutral gods are sometimes specified as holy symbols, while unholy symbol is used for those of evil powers. Certain devout followers of a god (such as clerics) must use a religious symbol to channel positive and negative energy. Certain divine spells also require a symbol as a divine focus for casting. A symbol can be made of any number of materials, including wood or silver.23
