Vulcan gong, Amok time

A Vulcan gong

The Vulcan gong was an ancient Vulcan musical instrument. It was hexagonal in shape, made of an unknown metal, and struck with a hammer that was partially made from a green stone.

During a Vulcan wedding ceremony, it was customary for the groom to call the wedding party by striking the Vulcan gong. (TOS: "Amok Time")

One gong was at T'Les' residence on Vulcan in 2154. (ENT: "Home")

A similar gong was rung during Spock's fal-tor-pan ceremony on Mount Seleya in 2285. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

Production illustrator Andrew Probert once characterized the design for the long range shuttle as having "subtle repetitions of that ceremonial 'gong' shape." [1]
