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.

I took the mineral iron pyrite and ground it fine with a mortar and pestle.
I extracted the golden water with a vinegar solution and poured it off until i had collected all of the yellow vinegar.
After the extractions were complete i took the leftover iron pyrite and calcined it outdoors through the colors of the peacock’s tail all the way to a final fixed red.
Alchemy peacock’s tail roasting iron pyrite by Steven School. Do not try this at home.
After the matter reached a final fixed red like an incombustible sulfur or a salamander which endures the fire it was allowed to cool and then placed back into an extraction vessel with more of my vinegar solution. The liquid became red like dragons blood.
The whole mass of roasted iron pyrite and red vinegar along with its sediment was poured off through stacked coffee filters then dissolved in warm vinegar and filtered again to reveal the fixed salt of iron pyrite. Dissolution and filtration seemed to prepare it more like “clear as liquid crystal” suggested in the alchemical writings of Theophrastus Paracelsus. additional roasting was not required as it only seemed to burn the salt.

Did Alchemist’s find a secret dissolving water called alkahest, or a heavenly water not wetting the hands (Michael Sendivogius). Did Alchemist’s have a secret water to dissolve gem stones? Is there in alchemy a secret water that gently dissolves gold without violence? Was this the secret fire of Alchemy? Or a secret crystal water?

How long does the black stage of Alchemy last? The black stage of Alchemy or nigredo was also called a work of Saturn in which matter putrefies into a black earth which was called the philosopher’s lead. Writings of the alchemist Hollandus indicate the black stage of Alchemy should last not more that 32 months. This time frame provides a clue regarding the secret work of alchemists because in alchemy I have seen many things turn black during different experiments, each with its own corresponding time frame.
