Adamah (Hebrewאֲדָמָה literally "red", designates the "red clay, the fertile earth, the dust of the ground, the soil or arable earth"; linguistically related to Greekαδάμας adámas, "impregnable"[1]) is called in Genesis the "field soil" from which Adam (Hebrewאדם "the one taken from the earth") was created.

„7 Then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.“

What is really meant by the "soil of the field" is not a perishable physical substance, but the etheric substance of the terrestrial sphere, which at this time still included the lunar sphere and was only compacted in its densest parts to the viscous state, that is, to the water element; the Moon only separated from the Earth in the Lemurian period through the Fall. It was at this time that the solid, crystalline earth element first emerged.


  1. Adamas or adamant is the name given in Greek mythology to a practically indestructible metal so solid that it can even injure gods. Uranos, for example, is emasculated by his son Chronos with a "toothed sickle of grey adamant". The name diamond is also derived from adamant.
