View Full Version : Egg Alchemy

Hi All,

I read in Vol 3 of the collection of the publication 'The Stone' from the Philosophers of Nature, that someone had made a solid stone using all parts of the egg but without giving the way to replicate it.

How would you go about doing this?


The shells can be ground fine and calcined to obtain the Salt.

The Sulfur in the animal kingdom is in the yoke, so perhaps you could obtain it by making an alcoholic tincture of the yoke and then evaporating off the alcohol to obtain the oil of egg. But would this also be the Sulfur?

In the animal kingdom the mercury is carried by the blood, so would you have to use chickens blood and proces it in some way to obtain the Mercury? Or can you extract it from the yoke as well?

If I would use eggs to create a Stone, I would first let them putrefies first.

Then, I would distill off everything that would come, after it's somehow logical for those who know.

I've made the oil of egg (yolks) from the ens process.
If you keep adding egg yolks you keep getting more oil/sulphur.
So this is a good method for the sulphur anyway.

The shell is mainly calcium carbonate, so if you're working
spagyrically you can substitute that for your salt.

The mercury... maybe chicken blood?
Or try distilling something from the egg whites?
Not sure. Just some thoughts.

Some info in John French: Art of distillation.
