    I just read one of his books and in it he says he goes through 3 color changes white, red, black totaling 9. Hope it can help.

    Would you mind elaborating, Wildfire? I for one haven’t read the book you’re referring to.

    How does he arrive at 9 when moving through 3 color changes?

    What Wildfire is trying to say is that he goes through three SERIES of colour changes, black, then red, and finally white totalling nine.

    Which does then indicate that you are correct Kiorionis, it is three full rotations of the 'stones'.

    I would also like to know what book your reading. Cheers

    The sources I use mainly are this: http://www.levity.com/alchemy/plant3.html

    And the book 'real alchemy' where its due.
    Hey there KnowledgeSeeker. Are you familiar with John Reid III?
    If not, he has a book online which you might enjoy:
    John Reid's Course on Practical Alchemy

    Part 2, Chapter 9 might especially interest you. His ‘Minor Opus’ in words and pictures.

    Speaking of which, I recently saw a video of an academic researcher who publishes books about western esoteric traditions, and during the video he points at two flasks on his desk containing a white and a red liquid respectively, and claiming that these are no less than the White Stone and the Red Stone. I became intrigued with such claims, so I did a bit more digging online, only to discover elsewhere online (on one of his pages) page that those liquids are merely metal colloids, which he describes as "lesser versions" of the stone.

    Also from his Twitter page:

    The first tweet on his Twitter account is interesting, it's about Taoist internal alchemy seems like a cool cat ���� here is a quote

    The approach is essentially meditative, and yet it is a meditation free of all formal structure, for it permeates all aspects of life. When our very body and being becomes the vessel of the great work, every act, inner and outer, potentially reveals (or conceals) our primordially immortal nature.
