.Concerning the Green Lion
NATURE begets a mineral in the bowels of the earth. There are two kinds of it, which are found in many districts of Europe. The best which has been offered to me, which also has been found genuine in experimentation, is externally in the figure of the greater world, and is in the eastern part of the sphere of the Sun. The other, in the Southern Star, is now in its first efflorescence. The bowels of the earth thrust this forth through its surface. It is found red in its first coagulation, and in it lie hid all the flowers and colours of the minerals. Much has been written about it by the philosophers, for it is of a cold and moist nature, and agrees with the element of water.

White Stage Alchemy Wet Path YouTube video by Steven School Alchemy.

Alchemy at a white stage video YouTube. In alchemy, the term albedo means whiteness and symbolizes purification through the washing away of impurities. The white phase of alchemy is said to be the second stage of the magnum opus. During the first phase of alchemy the matter is separated into two principles which later reunite to become one and this is called coagulation which completes the second stage of the magnum opus becomes white. Medieval alchemists developed an elaborate system of color coded images and symbols for alchemy with the white stone represented by a dove or the doves of Diana.

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.
