Physical Alchemy Methods History of Science and Chemistry

Alchemy is one of the most interesting subjects in the history of science and chemistry. Alchemical goals and methods varied between alchemists in different parts of the world. AlchemistsĀ attempted to purify, mature, and perfect certain materials considered “unripe”.

The secrets of alchemy and the mystery of matter; alchemy history. The universe above was considered to be all encompassing and alchemists called it the “all”. God was the creator of all things yet all things were created by nature. God was associated with the sun, the moon its wife. These two luminaries ruled the day and night providing heat and cold “energy” which causes phase transition to begin. Hot and cold acting upon vaporous gases in the “ALL” resulting in the coagulation of water which then enters the rain cycle. Condensation and vaporization driven by hot and cold, sun and moon. Thus “GOD” hath created the upper and lower firmament, a separation of the waters from the waters. In other words, the heaven and the earth. Secrets of alchemy most people do not understand. As the alchemist Theophrastus Paracelsus once quoted, those who do not put their hand to the fire will never know our sacred art. Alchemists invented the tools of modern chemistry and science, laboratory distillation apparatus, retorts, alembics, crucibles, furnaces, acids, etc. Paracelsus meant those who are not familiar with the uses of such tools through experimentation will not grasp alchemy illuminated.

The Golden Tract of Alchemy Concerning The Philosopher’s Stone.

As above so below, to do the miracle of the one thing. The wind hath carried it in it’s belly. The earth is it’s nurse. It’s father is the sun, the moon it’s mother. All things come from this one by adaptation. Hermes Emerald Tablet.

Old alchemical manuscripts variously describe two philosopher’s stones as being red or white. These colors in alchemy upon further research into medieval alchemy sometimes depict a white powder and a gold colored powder. The red philosopher’s stone of alchemy has presented more various opinions upon its actual color however it has been said in alchemy circles that alchemical manuscripts attributed to the alchemist Nicholas Flamel describe the red philosopher’s stone to actually be a gold colored powder. Other alchemists have described it as orange. I t has also been rumored that the philosopher’s stone of alchemy itself, is not a stone at all but a powder having been prepared by the alchemist using secret ingredients. Alchemy of Steven School.

I ground the mineral Iron Pyrite in a mortar and pestle which the writings of Theophrastus Paracelsus indicated grind as fine as the painters grind the colors.

I ground the chunks of iron pyrite and placed the iron pyrite into a large glass pickle jar for one of my alchemy experiments with iron pyrite. I added a large quantity of food grade white vinegar purchased at a local grocery store. i also added a much smaller amount of hydrogen peroxide theoretically creating a mild solution of peracetic acid. I loosely covered the top of the jar with plastic wrap to keep dust out but that expanding gases could find vent to save the glass pickle jar from breaking. The vinegar peroxide solution turned a golden yellow color over time which i poured off into an evaporation dish and evaporated outdoors on an electric hotplate.

The golden water evaporated to a green gum which i called my green lion of alchemy. this i carefully dried in sunlight to avoid burning its flowers or destroying its green color. I placed my dry alchemy green lion in a borosilicate retort which i had purchased from Amazon.

Distilling my green lion of alchemy extracted from Iron Pyrite with a borosilicate retort purchased from Amazon.

On the low heat of an electric hot plate my alchemy green lion extracted from iron pyrite seemed to melt and flow like pitch or wax. My green lion of alchemy turned black and bubbles came to the surface like unto the eyes of fishes. A clear liquid distilled over into the receiver which i called the blood of the green lion. After that finished i stoppled the flask and turned up the heat gradually by degrees. A volatile white material rose and affixed itself to the upper portions of the glass retort. I then scraped out the black earth from the bottom of the retort and calcined it with fire of the hottest degree.

My green lion of alchemy changed to a fixed red earth like powder. It seemed to no longer be affected by heat or fire. Alchemy of Steven School.
