White powder gold, alchemy

Nothing gold can stay, Robert Frost

Natures first green is gold,

her hardest hue to hold,

her early leaf’s a flower,

but only so an hour,

then leaf subsides to leaf,

so eden sank to grief,

so dawn goes down to day,

nothing gold can stay.

Glauber’s salt

This is said to be an excerpt from the alchemical writings of Glauber and attributed to a work of alchemical gemstones.

recipe from Glauber’s writings (part 1)

Adjoin to the red salt, made of wood or carbon, a little of the powder of white flints. Put them into a crucible, and melt them in a fire that they may become a red glass, resembling almost the colour of a ruby. By continuing the fusion the red colour changes to green, and has the likeness of an emerald. After this comes a sky colour, resembling a sapphire. Then follows a yellow, not unlike a jacynth. Then, after a long continued heat, it becomes black, and like to an agate.

The purifying fire of alchemy book #16 kindle edition

the purifying fire of alchemy

This text describes the three purifying fires. Emphasis is given to washing certain things snow-white with a Philosophical Purgatory Flame. Glauber states, “He that does not know what Fire and SALT are, knows nothing, and deserves not the name of a Philosopher.” The ultimate goal is to prepare universal medicines for the bodies of men and metals. Many references are made to various texts by other Alchemists. First printed in 1689, it was restored and added to the R.A.M.S. (Restorers of Alchemical Manuscripts) Library by Hans W. Nintzel in 1983.

The king of alchemy

Michael Sendivogius was like the king of alchemy to which other adepts paled in comparison. His alchemical works were based upon the great adept Alexander Seton however Seton instilled in him a lifelong passion regarding the alchemical arts of the ancient science with respect to medicine as well as the philosopher’s stone and the transmutation of base metals into gold or silver. As one ascends the rungs of the alchemical ladder it becomes clear that of the philosophical writings attributed to the adepts of the hermetic science of alchemy, whose were the most difficult to decipher? whose intrigued us enough to keep us coming back for more?, whose bore the highest wisdom concerning the light of truth? And whose were the most rewarding after years of study while the golden dawn approached?, Whose words rang true as the light of truth finally began to set in, illuminating the ignorant from the wise? Michael Sendivogius, the king of alchemy. The deep philosophy embedded in his words for all to see, but few to understand. The mark of the true adept.

Click the highlighted link above to go to the Steven School alchemy study group on facebook which is called the order of the twin serpents. This alchemy study group is for serious researchers of the hermetic mystery of the ancient science and not a Harry Potter fan club. Steven School has been researching alchemy with a focus upon the study of the philosopher’s stone since 2008. Alchemy is an in depth examination of natures mystery of natural creation beginning with the decomposition of matter followed by rebirth forming the compounds of new substances through natures rain cycle coupled with the dry heat of the sun with the earth as its nurse. The belief of the alchemist is that over time, matter evolves within the earth’s crust in a repetitive cycle towards perfection.

Alchemy black sun

The truth of the philosopher’s stone, alchemy and the green lion by Steven School.

The ravens head of alchemy which is also called the black stage signifies the alchemical “death” of the matter being worked upon by the alchemist as the substance is washed clean of its original sin. This sign marks the consummation of the royal wedding of the sun and moon in which a good union has taken place. Decomposition or putrefaction is the sign the alchemist must see before the philosophical or alchemical regeneration of matter can occur which then signifies the rebirth of the supernatural son of the sun. The phoenix risen from the ashes of the black alchemical sun.
