These are Sekhem Weapons made of Cozauhqui, one of the Five Hidden Elements.
Its "Vovin Crystal" (fragment which was parted directly from an Ater Adamantis and served as the main perfect body of a hidden element, in the case Cozauhqui) is known as Nemontemi Stone, within it lies dormant an entity,Xolotl, awakened some centuries ago by a massive sacrifice in Aztlán. Xolotl was the first entity to be awakened from a Vovin crystal and also it was the first crystal to be used beyond a Vovin host - making it an object of dread and interest for the few initiates across the galaxy.
The hidden elements are complex and have many different relations with one another and with common elements, being sometimes attributed to potentials and temperaments. They are as well ever-present, yet left unchanged on their own (they have no ordinary unit such as atoms, or previsible states like liquid or solid). So, making them manifest is something quite hard, and having these weapons crafted is an extraordinary achievement.
The possibility that the Telchine and Ahuitzotl species (related between them) had on creating weapons out of the hidden elements (and which self-generate them, as well) were understood in two manners:
Xiuhcoatl (literally fire snake in nahuatl) and Sekhem (meaning something like power in ancient egyptian language). Both needs to imbue a living organism, a pocket neural system full of memory and creative potential, be it dormant or not. The difference between the two resides primarily on the specifications of these serpentine composites. The Xiuhcoatl weapons make usage of the Cuetzpalin species' Tonalcoatl; the Sekhem makes usage of the Kratozoa, present in few Tritons and Drakainas. 
From many points in history, the selected weapons received more than one Kratozoa to be imbued, and amplified the power and possibilities of use of the weapons. While originally the sekhem were able to be used by few select species or individuals, the complex sekhem (Caduceus) could be used effecively broadly, and could be hidden from ordinary perception with certain ease. There was just a recorded case of a Sekhem with three Kratozoa, which, to become a Trident on its own, needed the intervention of fusing two previous sekhem weapons into one.
Here are the Sekhem, Caduceus and Trident (if ever formed) plus the original weapon shape (un-related to the hidden elements) of each weapon of this given element:

Thunder Excalibur Sword
(Tredian – Inherited from Abaris by Middle Eastern nomad collectives [bedouins] some time around 20th century a.X)
Original Shape: Mycenean design, probably by a King's Blacksmith
Component Kratozoa: Tritons Oedipus & Pollux
Some known users: Castor, Charlemagne, Napoleon, Agent Nicholas, Gustávos the Triton
Alternative names: Holy Sword
Approximate Measurements: 59,5 cm height; 21 cm width (original shape)
                                            63 cm height; 24,5 cm width  (Sekhem)
                                            84 cm height; 38 cm width (Caduceus)

Light Delphian Caduceus
(Helladean - in possession of the Delphic Order and its chief presiding deity, Apollo)
Original Shape: Elysian Design, by Lampades (nymphs / swart elves)
Component Kratozoa: Triton Cadmus & Drakaina Harmonia (until split); Tritons Cadmus & Orpheus
Some known users: Phoibe, Tyresias, Apollo, Asclepius
Approximate Measurements: 52,5 cm height; 31,5 cm width 

is known as the Gatherer. It has properties of hardness, indestructibility, and of a intricate relation between balance-sustenance and rift-explosion, between the poles of in and out. It is theorized that it might have on its own some kind of relation for microorganism or aetherial beings on what refers to as binding something together, be information, energy or anything of sort, yet nothing can be comproved at all. Whatever unit can be distilled of what in fact the Rasa binds together is mysterious yet, and may be even something artificial.

These weapons were crafted in different times and places, yet the main events when they were imbued with the living and dormant potentials of the Kratozoa involved direct participation of the aforementioned Telchine and/or Ahuitzotl Dark Sorcerers. At a point in the colonization of Tredius, the Telchines used them to control an almost indestructible army of automated fossils, by using weapons of all the hidden elements and through them, controlling and changing nature. That disrupted the ecosystem and would've caused a mass extinction, if there wasn't intervention from the gods. Victors, however, it wasn't the gods who would claim the weapons, but a fellow hermit and former Apkallu, Abaris the Hyperborean. He believed the great power of these weapons could be the key for the people of Tredius into acquiring autonomy and knowledge over the intricate relations of nature and that could lead to a colonization of the world without collateral damage. Then he split the weapons he possessed during different times to different native cultures in various spots of the planet. Some never made it to the planet, or did so sporadically. The weapons were able to virtually "root" on the planet, acting like spots of hidden elements and reciprocally influencing the nature it surrounds

The weapons, however, act like the Pelasgean Relics on which they were inspired, and have a certain magnetism. But only bearers and masters of these weapons may feel the other weapons and their effects on nature. And from a long time, few were able to even reach these relics. As industrial civilization progresses, the perception of the weapons and of the authors of the unbalance of environment has been shrouded. They also were disguised with titles based on the ordinary 10 elements-potentials.

Being Cozauhqui the hidden element with more reciprocity to master, it was the chosen element Apollo had to craft his Delphic Caduceus. The Caduceus was split through the Tyresian, so Apollo had another spine (of his own son Orpheus) to replace the one which was separated from it. The spines which were imbued with Cozauhqui were of most noted Tritons which had mastered their Orichalcum conches to almost maximum whilst living. The Sword which was inherited to Tredian people was often placed in mythologies and belief systems as an item of major importance due its power to bind wills. Its use also makes the bearer/user more vicious - and certain of its wills.
