View Full Version : Solidification of Mercury

I present you here something I've considered very weird and interesting since several years ago, the coagulation or solidification of common mercury. I've heard of it in Petri Murien (http://www.sacredmetallurgy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/alchemically-purified-and-solidified-mercury.pdf) books.

It's mostly a curiosity in fact, but it can be useful in confectionning magickal items (that's mostly, for now, the use I can atribute to such a thing), and traditionnaly in Ayurveda it is also what is done, doing with them Shiva Lingam, amulets ...

The good thing is that it can be molded and then doing of it shapes.

Several methods are possibibly used, some more or less quick, some longuer (but with less work). I've heard of an oil able to fix it quiclky, but maybe this oil requires more time to be made.

It is actually a transmutation of mercury into another metal. It's brittle and heavy, not fragile. It let a small colour out of it on the tube glass where it resided during the process.

Here are few images.

Here it's a very small tentative. I've done it twice. The first time I broke the "regulus" I had, and used a part of the powder to re amalgamate with new mercury. In order to see if there were any change in it. None happened.

wonderfully interesting Salazius!
have you any ideas as to what metal it was transmuted into?
and do you think it [the mercury, Hg] has lost any of its toxicity after the transmutation?

Thank you Kiorionis.

IMO it could be bismuth or antimony, but for now, I'll keep my sample for my curiosity cabinet and try another expriment.

It probably didn't loose its venom (I can be wrong of course).

One way to check if it is an amalgam or not is to heat it slightly under gold leaf; mercury fumes should make the gold leaf grey. Very peculiar observation indeed. Solidified mercury that can withstand fire is used in ayurvedic medicines.

Yes. I stand fire up to 100C without evaporation.
I have not make test with higher heat right now.

Truly amazing! I've heard it was possible, but now you have confirmed it.
Great work!!

Hi Salazius,

that's indeed interesting. Some time ago I got as a present also a piece of solidified mercury for its further investigation from a French alchemist.

Unfortunately I'm not able to upload a picture.

Hmmm this one seems smooth and mine is brittle. Depending on how is fixed the Mercury I guess !
Thank you for sharing this pic Weidenfeld !

I wanted your guys opinion on this video, and how this could be done (I am not a chemist or anything of the sort, I have always believed alchemy to be related to mental and spiritual phenomenon, but this was fascinating to me and am interested if you guys know how this is done)

This is Indian Alchemical tradition and it is based on solidified Mercury. The french author Petri Murien wrote a lot about this tradition. The secret is how to properly solidify Mercury without using any metal but an ash from a plant, if i remember it correctly.

Interesting how he keeps feeding it gold all the time. I wonder if it's ever fully satiated...

Have you read Recipes for Immortality by Richard Weiss. It talks in detail in about the Indian tradition. And you will walk away with the realisation their mercury and the mercury of the western guys are the same stuff.

Modern Indians mistake the term Mercury and Sulfur for Vulgar Mercury and Vulgar Sulfur. Unfortunately, as a result the entire Indian Alchemy system has been reduced to a joke among the locals.

That is very interesting. Did you notice the part where he says if he puts equal weight gold to mercury ratio rather than the small shivling of gold, it would actually produce new gold rather than absorb it? Did I hear that correctly? And of course its the same as the western alchemists mercury, I would say that the westerners alchemy is influenced by the eastern alchemy actually.

Some pics were posted by user solarseeker in ***'s forum about how mercury(vulgar) consumes gold under microscope.

I do not have the links now.

Maybe this is the most stupid post of my life, but all the amalgams of Mercury are "solid" (i.e, with gold, with silver, with potassium, with sodium, etc). Making Mercury become solid is not unknown to chemists (or even dentists!).

Making solid mercury is very easy.

Though, of course, the thing here seems to be how to make it solid and INTERESTING (the key word is "interesting" rather than "solid").

The videos in this second page are very interesting!!! I could not see the images in the first page, the links expired.

The secret of this technique is to not use metals in solidifying process but plant ashes and juices.

Salazius

But making a metal liquid and volatile at room temperature is also a great alchemical trick :)

It is not a chemical reaction to make mercury Hg solid, it is a transmutation.

Could it be an allotropic form of Hg?

All the gold you can eat (http://www.allthegoldyoucaneat.com/) :)

Wouldn't you prefer a ring that SPITS OUT gold instead of EATING gold?

For 'eating your gold', there are already banks and governments :)

Question, A necklace made of solidified mercury is still toxic to the wearer even if its not in a liquid state correct? So how can the yogi drink the water that the mercury necklace is dipped in without poisoning himself?

Who says the yogi knows what he's doing?

It is at first an allotropic form and then it is transmuted into the nearest element in the alchemical periodic table.

Hi bros,no Indian sage said that mercury can be solidified,they only said that it has to be fixed,the meaning has been misunderstood,

What do you think this fixed state of mercury would be like ggkvarma?

Hi ghilsian,they first kill the mercury,then again make it living,called amruthikaranam,ie similar to make the stone into elixir,it is in the form of powder,called bhasmas

Ghislain

Checking out bhasmas...


Various steps involved in the preparation of bhasma(or bhasmikaran) are:

Shodhan -Purification,
Maran - Powdering,
Chalan- Stirring,
Dhavan - Washing,
Galan- Filtering,
Putan- Heating,
Mardan- Triturating,
Bhavan- Coating with herbal extract,
Amrutikaran - Detoxification and
Sandharan- Preservation

Source: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhasma)

As you can see the first step (Sodhan) is purification, where in the case of mercury it is heated into a vapour and then collected leaving
behind the impurities, the collected vapour is still liquid mercury.

In the second step (Maran) it is powdering.

I would say that constitutes solidification.

Hi bro,no Marana is killing,there is process of solidified mercury,called kechari gutika,which gives many powers,
If your are interested I will provide with many formulas,but don't blame me if they are obscured
