    Seistrons of Gold

    Dear Teacher,

    I have looked for the the meaning of the word "seistron" both as a single term or the phrase "seistrons of gold", but could not find the exact explanation. It sounds to me as if something like "golden particles" based on the usage in the following text:

    "... God, whom we always represent surrounded with the fires of love and seistrons of gold—music and light and harmony. Is not He the Cause and the End of all our strivings?" - Balzac

    Thanks for your time to check and comment. Regards.
