That part has been solved with Saltpeter and Tartar. Just replace Antimony with Bethel stone in the old recipes and you are good to go.
Alfr asks which type of meteorite to choose from? Their chemical composition is always the same the difference is only in the proportions which result in different type of crystalization. Octahedrite are the best followed by hexahedrite and chondrites are the most common type and usually of poor quality and more of a stony nature.
Don't forget to add earthly iron because heavenly meteoric iron was considered female and earthly male.
Why would Fulcanelli talk about Cybele? What other stone was considered holy?
Everybody knows that Cybele was a meteoric stone brought to Rome during the punic wars.
Jimmy sorry for the late reply but i tend to take long breaks between my posts on this forum because alchemy is a lonely science where you need to travel alone with your own understanding which often differs from others so i kinda have nothing to say to people who work with urine, acetates even cinnabar although i love the last path purely out of curiosity.
If you ever cross a real meteorite which in your region is much more probable than here in Europe just poke him with glowing hot iron pointed North beforehand in order to magnetize it before piercing the meteorite.
If the blood and water sprang out of the wound were you pierced the rock then the matter is clearly our true matter but if blood and water doesn't flow from the rock i will reject the meteorites as the first matter.
