"The art of alchemy was handed
down through the centuries from Egypt and Arabia to
Greece and Rome, and finally to
western and central Europe. The word is derived from the
Arabian phrase "al-kimia," which refers to the preparation
of the Stone or Elixir by the Egyptians. The Arabic root "kimia"
comes from the Coptic "khem" that alluded to the fertile
black soil of the Nile delta. Esoterically and
hieroglyphically, the word refers to the dark mystery of the
primordial or First Matter (the Khem).
Simplified, the aims of the
alchemists were threefold: to
find the Stone of Knowledge (The Philosophers' Stone), to
discover the medium of Eternal Youth and Health, and to
discover the transmutation of metals. To the medieval
alchemist's mind the different elements were but the same
original substance in varying degrees of purity. Gold
was the purest of all and silver followed closely."
