Oh man in this wirld, wich I can't understand in an alchemy forum is such fanatic scepticism. I will not discuss anything with the stupid bahavior, nor reveal step by step in photos and details of paths and processes from the precious sercret wich alchemy is, nor even send a sample to an anonymous person. My words are founded in truth any experient alchemist could read it clearly and comprehend that. If I've commited errors or mistakes, for you point of view based on if I distill or not, if I get solve it or not, please share your perfect work with us in photos, step by step, the correct and definitive way to do this or that. Even if it was a graphic match it will be so fine to me. I'm sorry, I don't need to proof anything to anyone. I can't understand why a lot of kind of people doing nothing pass all the time to critisizes anyone in alchemy forums who wanna develope a philosophical and true dialog about alchemy. What you are doing here, any book of alchemy in the history will not give you what you are requiring and so them is worldwhile credited and a million of people pick up books of alchemy, what proof they do with words? the same will happens or still happens here?
Follow some important tracks from the "Rosarium Philosophorum":
Alphidius: "Argent vive is fire whereupon the Philosopher said, "Know therefore that Argent vive is fire and burns bodies more than fire".
We are the beginning and first nature of metals,
Art by us maketh the chief tincture.
There is no fountain nor water found like unto me.
I heal and help both the rich and the poor,
But yet I am full of hurtful poison.
"The juices of Lunaria, Aqua Vitae, Fifth Essence, Spirit of wine, mercury vegetable, are all one. The juices of Lunaria is made of our wine, which thing is known but to few of our children, and with it is our solution made, and our potable gold is made, that being the mean thereof and cannot be without it".
Calidus the Philosopher speaks of our water: "For it is a fire which burneth and grindeth all things, Argent vive is vinegar".
Socrates in the Turba: "The first force is vinegar, that is Argent vive".
Turba: "If you set the body on the fire without vinegar, it will be burnt, that is without Argent vive ... It is most sharp vinegar which maketh the mere body without which no colour cometh".
"Note well in the art of our magistery, nothing is concealed of the Philosophers, except the secret of the art, which is not lawful to be revealed to any man, for he that should do so would be accursed, and incur the indignation of the Lord and die with the palsy. Wherefore, all error is in the art, because they take not their due matter out of it, therefore use reverent nature; of it, by it, and in it, our art is engendered and in no other thing, and therefore our magistery is a work of nature and not of a workman. And so he which knoweth not the beginning, obtaineth not the end, and he which knoweth not what he seeks is ignorant also what he shall find".
"Know therefore that copper, which is the gold of the Philosophers, is their gold, but Senior said "Our gold is not common gold". And you have sought after the greenness, thinking that copper had been a leprous body by reason of that greenness which it hath. Whereupon, I tell you that all that is perfect in copper is only that greenness which is in it, because that greenness is by our magistery quickly turned into our most pure gold, and this we have tried, but you can by no means prepare the stone without green and liquid Duenech, which is seen to grow in our minerals. 0 blessed greenness, which engenders all things. You know that no vegetable and fruit appeareth in growing but it is of a green colour. Know therefore, that the generation of this thing is green, wherefore the Philosophers have called it their growing or springing".
Morienus: Three forms suffice for the whole magistery that is white fume, that is the first force, that is to say celestial water, and the Green Lion, which is the Copper of Hermes, and stinking water, which is the mother of all metals, of the which, by the which, and with the which, the Philosophers prepare Elixir in the beginning and the end. Therefore conceal from no man these three forms to the perfection thereof, but a fool handleth this magistery about every other thing.
Gratianus: "In Alchemy there is a certain noble body which is removed from master to master, in the beginning whereof misery will be with Vinegar but in the end joy with gladness".
