The Occultum is an artifact of divine origin. For centuries, it was housed in a temple until it was looted by invading Mongol hordes. The Occultum would eventually be traded on the black market.
Eleven years ago, it was in the possession of the Jacobson family, but when Hyram Jacobson's son fell ill, he traded it to the [[faith healer]] / [[angel]] [[Sister Jo]] in exchange for her healing his son. Jo later gave the Occultum to the [[demon]] [[Ruby]] with the plan for them to ride out the Apocalypse inside. Ruby was subsequently killed after hiding it and had refused to tell Jo where to find it, knowing too well that she can't be trusted.
In 2020, [[Castiel]] manages to contact Ruby in [[the Empty]] and recover the Occultum, which she had hidden a church guarded by [[hellhounds]]. When [[Jack]] consumes it, the Occultum briefly transports him to the [[Garden of Eden]], where the serpent restores his [[soul]]. The Occultum is currently in the [[Men of Letters Bunker]].
