Isaac newton and the philosopher's stone.

#alchemy, #projection powder?



Wenzel Seyler was rumored to have discovered a copper box hidden in the floor of an old church that was believed to have been hidden there by the legendary Friederich Gualdus himself containing four vials of a red glass like material, a set of instructions for performing the transmutation, and a copy of Magalia Naturae. 

Magalia Naturae

Amazing Health Benefits Of Oregano Oil

The health benefits of Oregano Oil can be attributed to its qualities as an antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory material. The disinfectant and antibacterial properties of oregano essential oil were recognized in ancient Greece where they were often used for treating bacterial infections on the skin or in wounds. Oregano means delight of the mountains and has been used to treat many things such as candida overgrowth, psoriasis, and even acne. Oil of oregano is harvested by steam distillation.  



A few grains of the Red philosopher Stone were folded into a small piece of lead from a fishing weight pounded flat with a hammer on a steel axe head, the mass was melted and kept in fusion for five minutes which left a black soot covered lump, that molten mass was dripped upon with cold water to clean and cool it, the cold water hitting the molten mass caused it to separate into two groups by weight, heavy and light, the lead was on top since it was lighter, here is the result of the experiment. (I believe that iron is an important factor in the equation) 
         8/7/2016   The dry path of alchemy.
The stone used is what the ancient alchemists referred to as the Red Stone of the first order, not having been multiplied. Notice that the lead did not stick to the axe head, but the colored material did, as if melted or fused to it. It is known in jewelry making that gold can appear in different colors when it is alloyed with another metal. Gold alloys can be purple, blue, pink, yellow, orange, green, copper colored or even red when 80 percent pure gold is alloyed with other metals such as copper for example. Silver is sometimes alloyed with gold and can produce a green hue. Some people attribute the color of yellow gold to the element of sulfur.      


from the writings of Michael Sendivogius. when the earth is of a ruddy color and the water is almost red, you should open the vessel and dip a feather into it. With this feather smear a morsel of iron and see if it be tinged. credit, Michael Sendivogius.

A note from Steven School about the differences between iron and steel which may be of relevance to the difference in some of the other metals as well. Iron is an element while steel is an alloy of iron with chromium and a small amount of carbon.  In hard rock gold mining it is generally considered to be a common belief that gold is often found in limonite veins wherein iron pyrite crystals have oxidized.

Cracking the Philosophers' Stone is a combination of historical commentary with reproducible chemistry that thoroughly analyses one of the most respected and mysterious chemical reactions in the history of science and technology. This book guides the reader through the origins and evolution of the archetypal recipe for the Philosophers' Stone of early Alexandrian alchemy. LaPort and Gabrielsson also provide details for various chemical reproductions based on the authors' interpretation and hypotheses of ancient chemistry preserved in encrypted form in alchemical texts. The book is written for both the curious layperson, historian of science and technology or as a source book for the experimental aspiring alchemist / chemist. This book will appeal to the student of ancient history, occult studies, historical chemistry, or the layperson familiar with the Philosophers' Stone but wants to learn more. The book is a must-have for every Rosicrucian and Freemasonic library (or the like) due to its discussion of ancient systems of thought and corresponding symbolism. Because of the human stories and historical backdrop, every layperson will find something of value to expand their understanding of the ancient world. Even scientists and specifically chemists will be fascinated with the reproducible chemical experiments presented in this ground-breaking work. The book is actually three books in one: 1) an introduction to alchemy, 2) a detailed history of alchemy's origins and evolution, and 3) a technical reference for actual reproducibility of alchemy's most sought-after prize - the Philosophers' Stone. Cracking the Philosophers' Stone is organized into three major sections. The first provides the reader with an overview of the Philosophers' Stone in the context of a general early history of alchemy. This foundational understanding serves as a framework for introducing newcomers and general enthusiasts to alchemical history, substances and processes discussed further into the work. In this section, the reader is systematically guided through major historical bifurcations that allowed for the evolution of technique and novel recipes for the Philosophers' Stone. This section is written in such a way that the reader follows the authors' sense of discovery and logic in a pedagogical fashion. Section two is a record of reproducibility. It includes details of each process, complete with frank discussions in the language of chemistry, which greatly facilitate review and reproduction of the experiments and syntheses detailed in the book. It is the 'how-to' section, if you will. Section three explores the practical applications for the Philosophers' Stone along with a hypothesized mechanism of action for each application. Conclusions are contextually counter-balanced by traditional alchemical texts and original interpretations.

alchemical transmutation?



The ancient sages believed that the building blocks of nature infused with life force energy could be taken from the plant kingdom and changed into vital medicines. This work is a tribute to Pliny The Elder who was both an alchemist and author 2000 years ago in the first century.






 The medieval sages believed that all things were composed of philosophical salt sulfur and mercury, and thus through secret alchemical processes matter could theoretically be reduced back into their basic elements. The idea was that through calcination, dissolution, purification and reunification various herbs or minerals could be multiplied into an exalted substance. The basic theory of the ancient philosophers was that lead represented the "body" of gold while missing its sulfur element, and further that perhaps another metallic ore might contain the golden sulfur housed in the improper receptacle. In the realm of mineral alchemy the color red is often associated with the element of fire, which Nicholas Flamel called Mars, the stout and valiant God of war. Other terminology for this subject included the fiery red king, and the dragon. In this video we shall embark upon an alchemical journey into natures mystery which is influenced by the works of Michael Sendivogius. The red lion, alchemy.

The ancient sages often made reference in their alchemical writings to the calx of fine gold and the weights of the wise. Some of them also called this material the red lion, or the treasure of the red lion as well as sulfur incombustible, and sulfur of the sun. We will examine here more thoroughly the depth and scope of this work, illuminating the ancient hermetic art. alchemy red lion.

The bible speaks of eternal life for those who unlock its mystery which has been shrouded in secrecy throughout the sands of time. ST MATTHEW 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth; but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? Proverbs 3:16 Blessed is he who finds wisdom, she is more precious than jewels, nothing you desire compares with her, long life is in her right hand, in her left hand are riches and honor, all her ways are pleasant, and all her paths are peace.

   The True and Perfect Preparation of the Philosopher's Stone, by the Brotherhood of the Order of the Golden and Rosy Cross Hardcover – 2013                                                        

                                          Click on book cover image below for more information.

Hardcover. 8vo. xiv + 82pp. Quality red cloth with gilt facsimile alchemical design and blind stamping to upper board, gilt titling to spine, b&w frontis, appendix "Laws of the Brotherhood" as published by Sincerus Renatus. Edition limited to 500 hand numbered copies. For the launch week only copies come with a special bookplate signed by the editor Dr. R. A. Gilbert. The first English language publication of this Alchemical / Rosicrucian work by Sigmund Richter that was originally published in Breslau in 1710. In appearance the work is very much that of an alchemical textbook, describing (in the symbolic / chemical terminology of the spagyrical adept) a series of operations which culminate in the creation of the Philosopher's Stone and "all that is necessary to the Work Ordinis Minoris and Majoris." As described by the editor, Dr. R. A. Gilbert, "The book has two distinct but related concerns. First, it sets out the stages by which the Brothers of the [Roscicrucian] Order can succeed in preparing, making and applying the Philosopher's Stone, but at the same time it presents a sub-text that guides the brethren into a realisation that there is a more subtle purpose to the text. It is also a guide to a parallel, spiritual change that takes place within the practitioner as he progresses with his task: material transmutation is accompanied by spiritual regeneration." The translation was probably made between 1950 and 1960 for J.W. Hamilton-Jones (1887-1965), one of a small circle of Rosicrucian enthusiasts who had founded a very private "Order of Rose +", and editor of two alchemical works - "The Epistles of Ali Puli" (1951) and Bacstrom's "Alchemical Anthology" (1960) and publisher of a translation of Dr. Dee's "Hieroglyphic Monad" (1947)


 The Athanor is an important part of practical laboratory alchemy. in this video we will demonstrate the basic fundamentals of construction as well as the practical application of this medieval furnace. this ancient device is still very important today for those who are interested in the hermetic art. important discoveries are made in the tower of secrets. as Paracelsus himself said, those who have never put their hand to the fire will never understand the hermetic art. this video is part of a series of instructional DVDs and booklets on the subject of alchemy. it is a silent film and a great work. note the interesting color changes which occurred unexpectedly to the cast iron during the making of this film. 24 minutes. 


Nicholas Flamel And the Philosopher's Stone Paperback – September 30, 2009

2009 reprint of 1624 edition. Nicolas Flamel was a successful scrivener and manuscript-seller who developed a posthumous reputation as an alchemist due to his reputed work on the philosopher's stone.An alchemical book published in London in 1624 as Exposition of the Hieroglyphical Figures was attributed to Flamel. It is a collection of designs purportedly commissioned by Flamel for a tympanum at the Cimetière des Innocents in Paris, long disappeared at the time the work was published. Some considered Flamel the most accomplished of the European alchemists. The essence of his reputation is that he succeeded at the two magical goals of alchemy -- that he made the Philosopher's Stone which turns lead into gold, and that he and his wife Perenelle achieved immortality.

Theory and practice of the philosopher's stone. Nicholas Flamel.


 In the realm of Alchemy there exists a substance which is illuminated by the emerald tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, this mysterious substance has been called the black dragon and the black earth of the Egyptians by the ancient sages. It is said to be a fertile earth, and a proper receptacle, lighting the path of the smaragdine salt, the Vitriol of the sages. 




Illuminating the hermetic mystery and exploring the ancient art of alchemy for those who have eyes to see.
