The Golden Tract of Alchemy Concerning The Philosopher’s Stone.
As above so below, to do the miracle of the one thing. The wind hath carried it in it’s belly. The earth is it’s nurse. It’s father is the sun, the moon it’s mother. All things come from this one by adaptation. Hermes Emerald Tablet.
In ancient or medieval alchemy, the philosopher’s stone was described as going through many color changes during its creation. Alchemist’s who wrote about “How to make the philosopher’s stone”, often depicted it as white, yellow, saffron, or even red. The Philosopher’s stone of alchemy was said to be wrapped in wax before the alchemist could attempt the transmutation of “quicksilver” or lead into gold. Quicksilver in alchemy was according to my theory or understanding, used to describe molten metal and not elemental mercury. Such hidden code words were used to keep outsiders from learning the craft or secrets of alchemy.
The philosopher’s stone of alchemy was said to exist in two forms, one white and the other red. The Red philosopher’s stone of alchemy was said to be a further matured version of the white philosopher’s stone. The White philosopher’s stone was said to have the appearance of wax.

The vegetable stone of alchemy was called lapis vegetabilis. Alchemy symbol the oak tree in alchemy. Alchemy of Steven School. The stone of the meadows is the vegetable stone in alchemy and this name seems to be more common in other countries like germany. It is a deep secret in alchemy which is symbolized by the oak tree and in my opinion this may unlock a large portion of ancient alchemical secrets in alchemy concerning the hidden manna, the alkahest, alchemical gemstones, and probably much more, perhaps even life extension spoken of in alchemical manuscripts from previous centuries.

The emerald tablet of thoth hermes says the wind hath carried it in its belly which means water as the sophic mercury. The earth is its nurse as it putrefies or ferments becoming the manna from heaven or gur. This material is collected in spring as the sal petrae salt stone or a white salt or white stone. The philosophical sulfur is locked within the oak tree and is released by water and fire exodus 32:20 Moses and the golden calf. Moses burned the “gold” in the fire and scattered it upon the water. Filtration of this material reveals the sulfur element which is an alchemical sun, sulfur of the sun, the citrine mercury of Nicholas Flamel which is then joined to the white salt through the sophic mercury (water) to reveal a blood red stone. See the writings of Nicholas Flamel in his letter to his nephew, you must know by what agent your “mercury” is to be fortified with or it will be as common water. The alkahest or secret dissolving water is the water and ashes before filtration as it is alkaline yet caustic and theoretically used to dissolve silica for ancient alchemical synthetic gemstones or alchemy gemstones which hypothetically receive their color from decomposed or alchemical processed metals.

The elixir of life, also known as elixir of immortality and sometimes equated with the name philosopher’s stone, is a potion that supposedly grants the drinker eternal life and/or eternal youth. This elixir was also said to cure all diseases. Alchemists in various ages and cultures sought the means of formulating the elixir.
So I’m experimenting here with amalgamating sulfur of the sun with mercury. The plan is to bring it into the realm of the metals. Solve et Coagula. Dissolve and Coagulate. Rolling through the phases of turning the alchemical wheel. First stop in this great work is the famous “Reign of Saturn” in which the composition putrefies and deposits a black earth called the ravens head. Alchemy of Steven School. Do not try this at home.
