Sol is a Rune in Diablo 2. Sol can be applied to Socketed Items, by doing so it grants said item different properties depending on if the Socketed Item is a Weapon or a piece of Armor. Runes can also be used in some Horadric Cube's recipes. When socketed in a certain combination and order, Runes can become Runewords, giving more powerful bonuses to the item they have socketed.
Sol Modifiers & Effects

An item Socketed with a Sol Rune increases the item's level requirement to 27, unless it was already higher.
