Dragon's Sigil Ritual

Hey, I just added the Ritual Caster feat to my character and have been looking at the rituals I can perform. I noticed the Dragon's Sigil Ritual which seems pretty cool, but I dont understand what types of dragons or draconic there are to choose from and what each one's effect will have on the sigil. Any help is appreciated.
I am not seeing a "Dragon's Sigil" ritual in the compendium.
It's homebrew, that's why we don't know about it. Can you paste the Ritual here so we can look at it?

[edit] Dragon's Sigil
You carefully guide the hands of an expert craftsman through Arcane influence into shaping a draconic sigil on your weapon or armor.
Level: 1 Component Cost: 5gp×your level
Category: Binding Market Price: 50 gp
Time: 1 hour Key Skill: Arcana (no check)
Duration: Special

This ritual must be performed on a weaponsmith, armorsmith or some kind of professional that can work with the material of either your weapon or your armor. It guides the hands of the specialist into inscribing the image of your dragon patron type onto either your armor or weapon with eerie realism. As you gaze at it, it seems to shift around and breath. By focusing your thoughts on the image of the dragon you see its breath take form.
When you first learn this ritual you must declare what type of dragon you revere and/or who your draconic patron is. The type of dragon you pick will determine how your sigil functions. This ritual can only be performed on either your armor or your weapon at one time.
If you choose to use this ritual on your weapon you can activate your sigil's power 3 times before it fades. You can add an additional 1d8 of your selected damage type to any attack. Increase to 1d10 and 4 times before fading at 11th level, and increase to 1d12 and 5 times before fading at 21st level.
If you choose to use this ritual on your armor you can activate your sigil's power 3 times before it fades. You can activate it as an immediate interrupt free action to grant 5 resistance to the type of damage your sigil represents and a +2 to your AC. Increase to 8 resistance and 4 times before fading at 11th level, and increase to 10 resistance and 5 times before fading at 21st level.

Weird gimmick. Looks like it'll cause a heavy case of five-minute-work-day, since you'll want to retreat to town or the hermit's place periodically. And if you waive the Specialist req, it becomes OP (or take the Blacksmith background, that might work), since it's granting you a strong three-use buff.
That does answer my question at all. I just want to know the types of dragon and how each one effects my sigil
Doesn't
The Ritual doesn't offer further guidance on the Dragon Type. Pick a Dragon and use its associated damage type for the Ritual's effect. For exemple, Chromatic Dragons would be;

1. White Dragon: 1d8 extra cold damage (weapon) or Resist 5 cold and +2 AC (armor)
2. Black Dragon: 1d8 extra acid damage (weapon) or Resist 5 acid and +2 AC (armor)
3. Green Dragon: 1d8 extra poison damage (weapon) or Resist 5 poison and +2 AC (armor)
4. Blue Dragon: 1d8 extra lightning damage (weapon) or Resist 5 lightning and +2 AC (armor)
5. Red Dragon: 1d8 extra fire damage (weapon) or Resist 5 fire and +2 AC (armor)

Thanks, that clears it up.
