Alchemy and the Alkahest

Alchemist’s supposedly possessed a secret water, a universal dissolving liquid called alkahest that was said to be beneficial in creating alchemy gemstones which were theoretically colored by VITRIOL. Notice the similarity of the words alkahest, and alkaline. My research also indicates that some gemstones are made from corundum. Silica is said to dissolve in alkaline water. When silica is heated with carbon above 1700 degrees celsius it form carborundum. What is the difference between corundum and carborundum?

the difference between corundum and carborundum

is that corundum is a extremely hard mineral, a form of aluminum oxide that occurs in the form of the gemstones sapphire and ruby. carborundum is crystals of silicon carbide used as an abrasive.

Iron is a “special” element because of its nuclear binding energy. The very basic idea is that when you fuse two light elements together, you get a heavier element plus energy. Similarly, if you have a heavy element that undergoes fission and splits into two lighter elements, you also release energy. Down to iron.

The Actum Leyden Alchemy Letter

The actum leyden alchemy letter is basically an alchemical manuscript depicting a secret alchemy process called the dew and salt method. It references alchemists working with dew and sea salt in a highly guarded secret alchemy recipe or formula. Some versions of the actum leyden alchemy letter also mention the use of gold chloride as well as silver chloride. Wrapping this ‘philosopher’s stone” in wax is also mentioned as well as melting it with gold to create what the letter calls “the projection powder”. Multiplication is also described as well as open/closed flask and heating instructions. I dare say i believe the ingredients listed in the actum leyden letter are probably code names substituted for other substances. Advanced crystal growing comes to mind.
