Alchemy and the Stone of the Meadows

Alchemy Triple Feature Elixir of Life- Sulfur of the Sun- Philosopher’s Stone by Steven School

Alchemy has been known since ancient times and consists of three basic realms or kingdoms which are known as plant, animal and mineral. Each of these three primary areas of hermetic alchemy is said to have a basic stone associated with it. These stones are sometimes referred to as philosopher’s stones. Lapis animalis, Lapis vegetabilis and Lapis mineralis are but a few of the alchemical names that have been associated with these alchemy stones. Below the basic vegetable stone lie various herbal tinctures alchemically prepared with materials from the plant realm. The word VITRIOL is common in alchemy and seems to be associated with The term visit the interior of the earth and by rectification find the occult lapis. There however is more than one type of “earth” encountered in alchemy. As concerns the realm of the metals alchemists usually chose a metallic ore or metal specimen of some type and then worked upon it with a liquid dissolving agent of which there were three main types. In ancient alchemy as depicted in the actum leyden letter and some writings attributed to the alchemist Friederich Gualdus, a seawater menstuum is alluded to involving water from the sea processed in different ways for purification and strength, sometimes modified by adding sea salt to vinegar and this was supposed to resolve metals back into their first matter and theoretically make them start growing again as living crystals. Vinegar later became the focus of metal acetate paths in alchemy which eventually gave way to acids. Acid and metal to burn off impurities, dissolve and coagulate into something called vitriol. These coincide with the seven planetary metals in alchemy which after being alchemically processed might be reduced into “stones” called vitriol. Alchemy gemstones hypothically speaking could have been based on such things as carbon, silica, and even vitriol made from metals or minerals. Alchemists were rumored to have an alkahest or universal dissolving agent to assist this process with the old axiom “solve et coagula” or dissolve and coagulate.
