    Pneuma Smith,

    Upon closer inspection, I see the operation you propose is identical to that proposed already by our friend, Solomon Levi.

    This specific text advises not to use common brimstone, but the 'Mineral Sulfur' or 'Sulfur Vive'.

    Centuries ago they apparently used sulfide minerals to produce it from, and Bacstrom mentions sublimed sulfur (Flowers of Sulfur).

    Never tried it, just FYI.

  5. bad procedure

    reading sometimes the text you have clear two things:
    1. the bell need to stay away some space from the fire-sulfur, separation by gravity ??? some bad-infernal fumes ???
    2. YOU NEED TO RECTIFICATE THE OIL!!!
    Salomon L. have a bad procedure...

    The bell is separated from the burning sulphur, in order to provide oxygen for the completion of the burning, I would think.

    Androgyn mentioned that the text says common brimstone should not be mistaken for sulphur-vive. Toward the end, the text seems to imply in parenthesis that sulphur-vive is sulphur that has been set aflame. What is your interpretation of the distinction?

    The bell needs the space for air/oxygen so the fire will keep burning, but this
    isn't as necessary if you add nitre. Or try getting a good size piece of iron glowing
    red hot and place it in the crucible with the sulphur.
    When i have tried to leave a space, the fumes always
    want to escape there, so i don't do it that way.


    If you want to ingest this, my procedure is not bad at all.
    But if you want to have the pure oil for some other purpose, then you'll have
    to rectify it or perfect the procedures mentioned in the books.

    From my experience, this has all the health benefits claimed in the Collectanea Chemica.

    sol

  10. ido!

    the fumes not condense because are too near the fire ? what sulfur you use ? from petrol or mineral ?? or flowers os S ? Ph grade ?? when you put the bell over S the fire no drowns ?? the book talk of a 'commond cold still' look the images. anyway if you not rectifique the oil you are ingesting the realgar of S, no ? (words of Paracels). some fumes can scape but the most dense part, i think, if the bell-funel is cold... john say the fire or S not touch the bell but if your method is good for you...
