Tertia Mineral and Metal Alchemy, Theory and Practice DVD Set


This is a five part video series designed to educate regarding the mineral work in alchemy. It is a video that examines the works on minerals and metals, which some consider to be the pinnacle of alchemical works. The video covers the theories on metallic alchemy and also provides practical examination of both the wet and dry methods. A good deal of time is spent on the acetate path and antimony. We also contrast these methods with alchemical works of India (rasashastra).

It is recommended that you purchase Bartlett’s The Way of the Crucible as a lab manual. You may also be interested in Karen Bartlett’s The Salts of Life

This runs for seven hours and sixteen minutes! Learn at your own pace!
