    Not sure what you mean "In cinnabar way the sun is a myth" Certainly you need the sun in caro's way. I know I done this this and anyone who ever worked with this method will tell you the same.

    That is what i'm calling sharing!

    Thanks Salazius for the tip.I noticed that in the pictures there is nowhere Sun or Sunlight to be seen except for "our" Sun.
    I will post the pictures very soon.

    Maybe that's why everybody has erred.

    In the books or documents of Caro somewhere it shows a picture of a lens with the sun shining on the glass.
    I must check this out again.
    I was always told that to get a really good black color you need very good sunlight otherwise it will only go a grey color.

    Cinnabar Way as I know and practice it needs absolutely no physical sun at all. You could do it perfectly in the polar circle during the 6 month of deep night ...

    It is maybe said that the Black only comes with an exposition with sunlight, but in fact, the Sun in question is philosophical. It's igneous rays burn the entire earth and the inner Mercury, by it's nature, give the possibility for a putrefaction.

    Philosophical months are also for the non initiated seekers, we don't need to count phi.month !

    And open or closed vessel is also for leading to a dead end the student. All these things are illogical and not applicable in practice.

    The Opus is enough complicated even without all these things...

    Even reading Caro's books cannot give a good hint of the Opus.

    Interesting about the sun aspect Salazius doing caro's work. I used it to get the black stage which worked very quickly.
    I then cut the head of the crow and when I tried the green stage nothing happened. I had the flask open but by then the weather had changed.

    Yes, for the Green, there is a key. And it's not in the Sun.
    See what say Fulcanelli about the Black Virgin procession with green candles.

    Know that there is not only one black, not only one green, nor only one "white" or "red", but severals during this Opus.

    Good luck.

    Yes, Salazius is right.

    Cinnabar is a (sun)light sensitive mineral who turns black when exposed to direct sunlight but that is by far away not a "true"putrefaction and probably the flowers of the Sulphur are burned in the process.

    Now i understand how did you manage to arrive to the "black" stage.
