ANTIMONY

There are severals ways to work with antimony and draw out it's special energy. The sub-menus on the left will show you 4 different paths. One with acids, one with bases, one with antimony trichloride, and one with dry amalgamations.

*WARNING: The mineral stibnite (antimony trisulfide) usually often contains dangerous contaminants like aresenic. It's therefor better to use pure antimony trichloride purchased from a chemical supplier.

The path using acid creates a beautiful display of colors, and produces the most attractive stone at the end. It also produces a Philosophical Mercury and 3 volatile salts which dissapear from a sealed flask if they are not kept in their own water. They are a wonder of science because they posses properties of the metals they were made from, yet they don't test as being the metal. One salt is yellow, one is white, and one is silver. The yellow is from the sulfur, and the white is from the iron. The white also aligns itself in a north-south dirrection because it's magnetic just like the iron it was made from. The silver salt is only formed once the Philosophical Mercury appears, and it is antimony which is no longer poisonous but now a powerful medicine instead. When these 3 salts are united, a beautiful red stone is formed which glitters and sparkles like nothing else on earth; a most precious jewel to own.

The antimony trichloride path takes just as long as the acid path, and produces impressive displays of color as well. But the process is much more dangerous, and the end product can be contaminated with antimony and poisonous gold chloride.

The alkaline path which uses bases to extract a red juice from antimony ore is quick and efficient, but produces no color displays and leaves much to be desired. It also may contain antimony metal in the end.

The dry path is quickest way to make a stone which passes the test, but using it as a medicine for the human organism would be foolish since it contains mercury. But still, it will perfect metals, and makes plants grow extremely fast. And instead of antimony, radioactive metals like uranium can be used in this dry path, and the mercury absorbs their energy. The mercury is then fixed with sulfur and made into a red powder which has extremely strong effects if one were so brave as to have a taste. But it's a mistake to try and consumer a stone made by any of these processes if you have multiplied their power.

All of these processes come from different sources. Each is unique in it's time of development in the history of alchemy. On each page I explain where the process came from and give credit where credit is due (which is a rare thing in the modern alchemy world; often I find people who've made their own little website that is nothing but a plagerism of this one. Every word on this website was type out by me, with the exception of quotes from older manuscripts).
