The Red Lion
The Confection of the Philosopher’s StoneBy Joe LelloWARNING: This is
an operation for beginners or even amateurs withminimal experience. If you have never melted a pot of boiling lead, or castpot-metal, do not attempt this procedure. All of the materials are highlytoxic and the distillation procedures are deadly dangerous to perform.Many highly skilled people have died attempting to complete this Workover the past five or six centuries.
This document is an addendum to Robert Cox’s ground shaking newbook,
The text may be purchased atAmazon.com at this URL:http://www.amazon.com/Elixir-Immortality-Modern-Day-Alchemists-Philosophers/dp/1594773033/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1254257270&sr=1-1 This is without a doubt the very best book on alchemy I have found inover 10 years of reading and research. If you aspire to confect TheStone and have not read it, please stop now and do so. If you havealready read it, then you know it presents much important informationbut lacks a few critically important details, which I intend to providehere as well as giving you a hands-on guide to actually performingthis Work, step-by-step. For this operation, you will need four mainingredients:
3 pounds of triple-distilled Mercury (Hg)
3 pounds of Bismuth pellets (Bi)
3 pounds of Antimony “shot” (Sb)
½ ounce 99.9999% pure Gold metalA good source for Mercury with a minimum of hassle ishttp://www.sciencelab.com. The current price is about $135 lb.A good source for Bismuth chunks and Antimony pellets ishttp://www.consolidated-chemical.com/at $10 and $12 lb.,respectively.
The Queen (Lunar Phase)
Begin by breaking up the bismuth pellets into fine granules. This isbest done by placing a handful inside an old dishrag, setting it on ahard surface like concrete and whacking the daylights out of it with ahammer. Bi is a very brittle metal and shatters easily, much likeceramic pottery. You can also crush the pellets with a heavy pair of pliers like vise-grips. Crush them to a powder fine enough to passthrough a coarse strainer with mesh slightly larger than windowscreening.Pour about 1 lb. of Hg into your mortar and pestle and sprinkle inabout a spoonful or two of the powdered Bi. Let it steep for 15minutes or so. The Hg will act upon the Bi and soften it up, makingthe grinding much easier. Place the mortar under a constantlytrickling stream of water. An outdoor sink is good for this. Let themortar fill to the brim and gently overflow. As you begin to grind thetwo materials together, a grayish-black “filth” or “feces” evolves thatwill be washed away by the water. Keep grinding and rinsing until nomore filth comes out then add another spoonful of Bi powder andrepeat as before.Continue adding, grinding and washing until you have a sparklingclean, silvery amalgam the consistency of cookie dough. Place thisinto a tightly sealed glass jar and let the materials commingle anddigest together undisturbed for about 2 weeks. You can use this timeto locate and order or assemble a retort or distilling flask that you willneed in the next step – which is a distillation.You can use a retort made of either cast iron or high-temperaturequartz glass to distill the Hg out of the amalgam. Ordinary glass,even borosilicate glass will not serve here because they melt at lower temperatures than we will be working with. Fig. 1 illustrates a retortof the preferred configuration although it is not made of quartz glass.
