    "Selected Chemical Universal and Particular Processes" of Baron Von RUESENSTEIN.
    It is in the RAMS library.

    There is another text, very rare.
    Its title :
    "La fin des ouvrages de Bazille Valentin et de Théophraste Paracelse" by an Adept.
    It deals with dew and salt.
    I just have a part of this book, not the all text.

    Do you mean "Gualdus: Revelation of the True Chemical Wisdom"?

    No, it is not this text.
    Rusenstein wrote a treaty with discussion between six adepts.
    One of this Adepts was Gualdus.

    Thx a lot 4 info.
    This team of adepts was really experienced, they produced it even from feces or cemetery earth !
    So, lets study this labyrinth again. I should believe G. Meyrink b4 years.


    NOTE: I think that my translation of "STERCORE HUMANO" was more exact than this censorship of mine post by admin. I really hate this newspeak and all this "correct" activities around.

    Water of the clouds is simply water. It does not matter at all where it is gathered, because if that was important then surely Philosophers would have said 'water of the clouds that has fallen out of the sky' since it would practically be impossible to gather it fresh from the clouds in ancient times.

    I referred to the following sentence, but omitted it since it contained an insult: "But fools, hearing of water, think that this is water of the clouds. Had they read our books they would know that it is permanent water, which cannot become permanent without its companion, wherewith it is made one. But this is the water which the Philosophers have called Water of Gold, the Igneous, Good Venom, and that Sand of Many Names which Hermes ordered to be washed frequently, so that the blackness of the Sun might be removed, which he introduced in the solution of the body."

    What it means is that the Water the Philosophers refer to can never form clouds in the sky. I would thus not consider water of the clouds equal or even similar to heavenly dew, since I assume the heavenly dew to correspond with Mercury. Only that which has a redeeming principle can be considered heavenly.

    It seems even that the rain is better(much more powerfull) than dew in this respect...

    Yes, only the rain corresponds with these descriptions to the full extent.
    Those are not my words. Does the following sentence from the Emerald Tablet make any sense in the above context: "Earth must be separated from fire"?

    That's a trouble with alchemical text!They leave too much room for guessing.
