    Orgnoselenim has a vile smell when isolated. Then when purified turns red, and then black. Then when gold is added to selenic acid, leaves a golden white powder. I think I am onto something here. I am going to continue research into organoselenium. I am going to have to start getting a lab together and attempt to isolate some.

    I wonder if Aurothiogluocose could be produced with the sulphur replaced with selenium? I need to figure out the production techniques for Aurothioglucose, seems difficult to find anything on the net so far.

    I have a feeling that the selenium may have been found in the spirit of (wheat) wine. This could perhaps be our water? It is amber after all. There is high selenium levels in wheat. And I wonder if we were to make wine from it, if this may work to get the selenium from the wheat.

    This would also explain why the potable gold/mana was called 'bread'. And explains the dirty yellow colour of it.

    Yet again. I need to attempt this, I need to get a lab.

    I have a feeling I am really onto something here regarding organo-selenium compounds.

    Seems that brazil nuts are the best source for selenium. Perhaps it is time I set up a lab?
