    That's funny because they called it "Womans work and child's play" as well.

    Alfr asks which type of meteorite to choose from? Their chemical composition is always the same the difference is only in the proportions which result in different type of crystalization. Octahedrite are the best followed by hexahedrite and chondrites are the most common type and usually of poor quality and more of a stony nature.
    It's hard to believe the bethel stone will work the same way as antimony but I will try that just out of curiosity.

    Don't forget to add earthly iron because heavenly meteoric iron was considered female and earthly male.

    Why would Fulcanelli talk about Cybele? What other stone was considered holy?



    Everybody knows that Cybele was a meteoric stone brought to Rome during the punic wars.

    What about Haymon (and Flamel etc) quote from Amiens chapter? It is ambiguous
