Alchemy is a proto-scientific and philosophical tradition aimed at the transmutation of base metals into noble metals, notably to achieve the creation of a philosopher’s stone. Alchemy, a precursor to modern chemistry, also sought the discovery of a universal panacea, and the revelation of the spiritual truth symbolized by the philosopher’s stone.


The alchemist spent years attempting to turn lead into gold, a fundamental pursuit of alchemy.
