Red sulfur alchemy

Perhaps one of the greatest mysteries in alchemy has been termed “the quest for the red sulfur” often called “the perfect red king” or “the sulfur of the philosophers”. Medieval alchemists were believed to have searched for the “philosopher’s stone recipe” or the “philosopher’s stone ingredients” in their quest for “alchemical gold” while at times wondering “does the philosopher’s stone exist?” Early alchemical experiments in “the search for the philosopher’s stone” brought up such questions as “how to make red sulfur powder” which was rumored to appear after a “white philosopher’s stone” and known only to illuminated alchemy initiates by a secret “philosopher’s stone symbol”. Alchemy keywords often entailed the green lion of alchemy, the ravens head or ‘black stage”, the “eagles wing”, a peacocks tail, the white stone, and a red incombustible sulfur or “sulfur incombustible” which was said to be the result of an “alchemical wedding” known as ” join the red man to the white wife” which supposedly produced “the supernatural son of the sun”.                 Article written by Steven School.

The Truth of the Philosopher’s Stone or Magnalia Naturae is a story about a search for the philosopher’s stone. It is about an Austrian friar named Wenceslaus Seilerus, who searches to transmute stone into precious metals. According to Dr. Becher’s account, the friar truly did manage to turn stone into precious metals and this story is the record of Wenceslaus Seilerus’ alchemical achievement.

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.
