Perhaps one of the greatest mysteries in alchemy has been termed “the quest for the red sulfur” often called “the perfect red king” or “the sulfur of the philosophers”. Medieval alchemists were believed to have searched for the “philosopher’s stone recipe” or the “philosopher’s stone ingredients” in their quest for “alchemical gold” while at times wondering “does the philosopher’s stone exist?” Early alchemical experiments in “the search for the philosopher’s stone” brought up such questions as “how to make red sulfur powder” which was rumored to appear after a “white philosopher’s stone” and known only to illuminated alchemy initiates by a secret “philosopher’s stone symbol”. Alchemy keywords often entailed the green lion of alchemy, the ravens head or ‘black stage”, the “eagles wing”, a peacocks tail, the white stone, and a red incombustible sulfur or “sulfur incombustible” which was said to be the result of an “alchemical wedding” known as ” join the red man to the white wife” which supposedly produced “the supernatural son of the sun”.
