Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.

Sephirot — Kalkstein, the alchemist, describes them to Geralt thusly:

Alchemy contends there are ten elements of the Tree of Life — aspects of divinity we are capable of knowing. [...] the Sephirot are the Words of Creation carved as symbols into ten stones. The channels connecting them are the branches of the Tree of Life. There are ten Sephirot, divine Words of Creation: Keth'aar — Crown, Chocc'mah — Wisdom, Veen'ah — Understanding, Kezath — Love, Ghe'vrath — Power, Tipperath — Compassion, Neh'tza — Victory, 'Oth — Glory, Yesath — Foundation and Maal'kad — Kingdom.
