The Stone & Violet Alchemy Shelf features symbols representing...
The Three Primes. The Four Elements. The Seven Metals.
At Alchemy's core, the cosmos is fitted into three spiritual substances, Sulfur, Salt and Mercury. Together they are known as the Tria Prima, The Three Primes. The Alchemists also believed that all matter was composed of the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. These four elements were considered the building blocks of all matter. With the correct combination of elements, it was theorized that any substance on earth could be formed. Finally, belief in the connection between the seven metals with the 'seven planets' reaches back into ancient history. The link between man, the earth-bound metals and the wider cosmos has long ago been established. Gold has always been associated with the Sun, and Silver, with The Moon. The seven metals and their planetary and astrological correspondences are important in many aspects of alchemy and modern energy workings.
Carefully and cleanly carved into the base of the Alchemy Shelf are symbols for the following:
The Three Primes: Sulfur, Salt & Mercury
The Four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire & Water
The Seven Metals:
GOLD dominated by The Sun
- SILVER dominated by The Moon
