    A possible female alchemist is Mary Anne Atwood.

    She worked with her father in the lab for many years and wrote the book:

    A Suggestive Inquiry into the Hermetic Mystery (1850)

    There is no evidence that Hypatia of Alexandria searched for the Stone.

    Elizabeth Grey was a spagyrist, not an alchemist.

    Marie Curie was a chemist and physicist, not an alchemist.

    Mary Anne Atwood held kooky ideas about alchemy, like it supposedly being carried out inside the human body itself. Revisionist nonsense stemming from 19th century occultism, NOT alchemy.

    Unquestionable women alchemists:

    Mary the Jewess & Mary the Copt (these two are often confused with one another because they had the same first name, but as you can see from their full names one was Jewish, the other one a Christian Egyptian)

    Cleopatra (not the famous queen, but an Alexandrian woman who had the same name)

    Theosebeia (she is featured in several alchemical dialogues with the Alexandrian alchemist Zosimos)

    Farafrai Balambin (she is mentioned in the long alchemical dialogue between King Marqunis & King Sanfaja; her name was likely Alexandrian or Byzantine, but only the Arabic version of this dialogue has survived, so we only know her Arabicized name; she is said to have built a temple with pictures containing the secrets of alchemy on public display; this is the oldest notice so far found regarding the practice of conveying alchemical teachings through images on public display, much older than Fulcanelli, Elias Ashmole, Esprit Gobineau de Montluisant, Thomas Charnock, al-Iraqi and even Ibn Umail; Ibn Umail in fact himself often quotes this alchemical dialogue, so we know it certainly predates the 10th century AD.)


    After the "radicalization" of Christianity and then the advent of Islam, we notice that women apparently become much less involved in alchemy, at least as far as the literature is concerned. It is apparently not until Perenelle that we again hear of a notable female figure in alchemy, and even then she is portrayed as an assistant to her husband.

    Iulia Millesima of Labyrinth Designers is apparently a woman, as stated on her Author page:

    The old man came back and asked me if I was interested in Alchemy. Someone inside me answered ”very much”. I was 21 and that man would have become my teacher. Please do not suggest I was a brilliant student. I was a superficial girl at the time. And I struggled to get the “Why” before the “How”.

    Did she transmuted metals? Yes

    Did Canseliet called her closet alchemist? Yes
