Spirit of wine was used (not vulgar ethanol - although I'm sure it will work) with ACS reagent grade sal ammoniac.

Did you ingested it?I have read it has very stimulative effect on Venusian aspects and on other gender.

Hi, thanks for the complement.

I haven't ingested any yet. Most of my work is small proof of concept experiments. I rarely ingest anything I make.

I have my doubts about whether or not this is the true sulphur of copper, and not simply a vulgar chemical concoction (copper salts). I will attempt to reduce a small amount of this solution with magnesium ribbon. We have a verdict if copper precipitates out!

Archibald Cockren in his book "ALCHEMY REDISCOVERED AND RESTORED" reveals some information on extracting the oil of copper and iron.

"After purification of the salts or vitriol of these metals, of calcination, and the obtaining of a salt from the calcined metal by a special process, followed by careful distillation and re-distillation in rectified spirits of wine, the oil of these metals was obtained, a few drops of which used singly, or in conjunction, proved very efficacious in eases of anemia and debility which the ordinary iron medicine failed to touch.

The conjunction of iron and copper proved to be an elixir of a very stimulating and regenerating character,
the action being such as to clear the body from toxins, and I well remember on taking a few drops one evening that the prospect of a spell of fairly strenuous mental work, even after a really laborious day, seemed to hold no terrors for me!"

I think i have an idea what this special process is...

As for the sulphur of copper, Basil Valentine describes it rather accurately in the first book of his Twelve Keys (4): "Amatory Venus is clothed with abundant color, and her whole body is almost completely made of a tincture or color similar to the one of the Sun, which, because of its abundance, closely borders on red. But [since] her body is leprous and sick and affords no permanent substratum to the fixed tincture, [when the body perishes, the tincture perishes with it, unless it is joined to a fixed body, in which it could elect its seat and dwelling in a stable and permanent fashion]". - Fulcanelli - Dwellings

Another interesting tidbit for you.
