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.

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.
