Product description


Alchemy, Jung reminded us, was less a science for turning lead into gold and more a philosophical quest for enlightenment. Now, with The Alchemy Stones, the traditional symbolism and techniques of alchemy have been marshaled for those seeking to clarify their everyday problems and choices. Twenty-eight stones inscribed with ancient alchemical symbolsrepresenting the alchemists, their ingredients and tools, base elements, the seven planets, and the different stages of the alchemical processprovide a way for the user to find answers to their questions. Richly illustrated with traditional engravings, the book explains the history and philosophy of alchemy, relates traditional alchemical texts and illustrations to the alchemy stones, and presents five different ways to lay out the stones to address situations of different complexity. An elegant velvet bag to store the stones in is included.
