    Sorry i did not mean 'Alchemical' as in the process of cultivating gold, I ment 'Alchemical' in terms of Hermetic theory in practise.

    I don't know whether this is bamboo salt or not. It looks like the photos I found online. Someone placed this in my mailbox inside an unmarked envelope. I'm curious to what it could be, has anyone seen something similar?

    Do you have any particular found photos you may like to juxtapose?

    Because to me they look like tree resin or maybe semi-precious gemstones...
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.

    I updated the post with a better photo, hopefully that will help. I am not a good photographer, here is one image I found online. Thank you Kiorionis.

    Why do you think it might have to do something with salt or Alchemy in general?

    I don't think that friendly people would anonymously send you some strange stuff in unmarked envelope. It could be just anything - some kids decided to joke, or it was put there with some malicious intent.

    I was reading this thread and about bamboo salt, then I remembered I found this in my mailbox. Originally I thought it was some sort of failed drug deal, or maybe someone was just giving away strange stuff? I don't really know, I am still trying to identify it.

    Smoke it and find out.

It is also not a term reserved to the 16th-18th century, it is still in use in German today, and means exactly the same thing as it did back then. The word is also still in use in Dutch as "bedrieger". https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/bedrieger

    But it is remarkable that that is the thing you choose to reply to.

    As usual, learn how to read (I never said that it was only one type of conman that received such a label) and also get better acquainted with the subject before trying to sound smart. Read Tara Nummedal's Alchemy and Authority in the Holy Roman Empire, which deals extensively with the subject of the "betrüger" in the alchemical context of those times.

    Yeah, sure, same old same old from JDP. Pretending to know it all and accusing others of ignorance. It's getting old and you're just making yourself look foolish.
    Pretending to be the one who knows better than everyone else because you've read a few books too, yet completely oblivious as to what the "secret solvent" is and how to obtain it. Why don't you just practise some modesty and stop trying to play the alpha chimp and bluff everybody into silence? Stop acting like a know-it-all and admit you just don't know. Perhaps then somebody will feel compelled to share the big secret with you. Heck, if you try nicely, it might even be me. But not as long as you act like a puffer donkey. Or did you not realise that your pretentious ways might be the reason why nobody has shared the secret with you yet?
