 What is the origin of The Shield of the Sun?

Can anyone reference me where the information for The Shield of the Sun came from? Crystal Keep references Dragon Magazine Issue 342 page 69 and the description isn't even close.
I'll quote from the issue,
|“||This +2 heavy steel shield has a highly polished concave reflective surface that contains a large golden gem at it's center. Twice per day, on command, the gem can ignite a brilliant beam of sunlight, blinding the living, and destroying the undead. This effect is equivalent to a sunbeam spell )caster level 13th). Strong evocation; CL 13th; Craft Magic Arms and Armor, sunbeam; Price 74,170 gp; weight 15lb.||”|
Thanks to anyone who can help here.
