According to [[Castiel]], it was created the last time an angel smiting occurred when Lot's wife turned to salt. This crystallized rock can transform a human’s body into a pillar of [[salt|rock salt]]. [[Balthazar]] steals this weapon from [[Heaven]]. He 's armory, and later uses it to transform [[Raphael]]'s [[vessel]] into a pillar of salt in order to save Castiel.<sup>[[6.03 The Third Man]]</sup>

===[[11.10 The Devil in the Details]]===
[[Castiel]] tells Dean that when angels in Heaven pool their collective power for a mass smiting the effect can lead to a person being turned into a pillar of salt, as with Lot's wife.
===[[14.19 Jack in the Box]]===
After being manipulated by [[Dumah]], [[Jack]] turns an atheist into salt with his powers, not requiring the weapon to do so. At the Bunker, Castiel mentions how Lot's wife was punished by turning her into a pillar of salt and how the power necessary to do so cannot be done by a typical angel.
