Antimony Dry Way

I practiced a little the Antimony Dry Way of Mr Burensteinas.

Some photos :

A piece of antimony, an ingot of 99 % purity.

A regulus broken in the vertical sense.

In the horizontal sense now.

Home made tools. An evening for each.


The Regulus and the radiance in it (this one is not "updated").

The same regulus, I underlined the star and the cave.

Broken in two.

I witnessed several changes in the directions of the crystallizations, also in the colours that can show the regulus (in the star).

L'Hermetisme dans la vie de Swift et ses Voyages - Eugène Canseliet

       This little book is now quite rare, I had the luck to get one . The author treats about the green language in Lilliput and other related subjects. The complete title is :

       "L'Hermetisme dans la vie de Swift et ses Voyages".

        I decided to deliver here the very curious, rich, and unknowned drawings, from this book.

         They are like that, in the text, with explanation at all.

         This author was very knowledgable, and loved the "bird language", for example, "FAIRE TAIRE", can be read as FER TERRE (Iron and Earth = 'antimony').

Copyright, Fata Morgana 1983.

Put the FAIRE TAIRE upside down and you can see that another angle is always interesting !
What do we have now ... Venus and Mars, Copper and Iron, united !

          Both were on a sea or bath, maybe their union make them "float", or makes them appear on the top of the Bath.
        And the Star makes me think about the Divine Dove, coming from above and diving into the Sea.

Cobalt finally

De Images Blogger
Cobalt's tincture should be carefully distilled. But it cannot be condensed very much, in fact it makes a precipitation of the Sulfur, into a violet cloud (very nice to witness). So, if you make a Tincture out of Cobalt, do not extract too much of it, just extract it when needed.
Finally, here end my lab adventure with Cobalt, a very nice moment to spend with this matter. its energy is sweet, colours are inhabitual and great to see.

Now it needs to be circulated a little in order to rise the planes.

We perfectly see the colour of the Soul of the Cobalt.
This is not always the case, that one can deduce the "colour" of a metal by the associated gem. Like manganese, that is of a brown/orange colour, and amethyst which is also a manganese gem, but its colour is violet. Wonders of Nature ...

Cobalt's Soul.

The beginning of extraction.

Finally, the tincture is pink.

I'm now collecting more and more of this Sulfur, then I will distill it and try to determinate what nature is Cobalt.

The Brass Vessel of the Wise King Solomon.

King Solomon, The Wise, by magick, imprisoned 72 demons in a Brass Vessel. These 72 evil spirits, can be seens as the chaotic counter part of the 72 Spirits of the Schemhamphorash (Franz Bardon link them to the Mercury Sphere).

• Why a Brass Vessel ?
• Why imprisoning them ?

First, it is a *Brass* vessel, and not a copper vessel, or Iron vessel, nor Bronze (another alloy out of copper, but, not zinc, tin instead) because Brass is linked as "metal" to Mercury. (with mercury, Hg, but try to imprison something in a liquid thing ...). If effectively, these entities are in a mercurial level, then, they can be imprisoned into a vessel vibrating in the level of their own world.

The Seal, Sealing the Brass Vessel.

Secondly, this "brass" is maybe a special brass, alchemically made, I mean, and Electro Magicum, looking like brass. This is more probable, because, in the mind of Solomon, these 72 kings represents the whole part of evilness in the universe, so the vessel should be in link with all the levels of the creation.

I don't believe, as the legend say, that the vessel were put deep into the sea. Maybe it was put into A special kind of sea, protecting magically, and physically, any harm to the vessel.

I doubt Electro Magicum or common brass could resist several centuries of sea salt attacks...

We see that in the Goetia, the vessel is said to be engraved of black letters upon red, and the top of the vessel is sealed with a "magical seal". This is of course part of the protection and the magical imprisoning of the Spirits.

Solomon was very Wise indeed, certainly far more than the man how opened the vessel, what a Pandore box ! Releasing these toxic poisons into the nature ... bad idea.

Today some people instead of trying to put these spirits back into the box, prefer to see the vessel as a half symbolic/pragmatic box for the seals of these 72 demons, that they call upon when they need money or something else for their comfort of everyday. And paying the double of the price they asked for, as boomerang, quite a normal thing, it is the law. Franz Bardon tells and warns us again any pacts or other trade with these spirits, and today, people go to see them, asking things ! This is not wise at all, this is dangerous.

These 72 spirits are like psychic, energetical poisons. Don't even look at their seals, don't even read their names, look at flowers or a night sky instead, it is far more beautiful isn't it ? A rose scent is better than rotten flesh smell no ?
When you do Alchemy, at a certain time you come across process of making gold. One night while trying to sleep, I saw in my mind's eyes, a little ...devil, in front of a crucible (with gold in it). He didn't speak but was very submissive, and was "giving me" the crucible... what a temptation right ? Imagine what could happened if I had say 'yes' ? I told him a big NO, projecting to him Light via my palm center. At that moment, I saw, in a big Light, Durga coming to me, on her Tiger, with her thousand arms raised, all armed.
This devil remembered me my bank advisor asking me if I needed a credit...

I don't, I can't understand these people asking to these evil spirits material etc, things. But know that, even if you ask a "good" spirit something, you also have to "pay" for that !

If Solomon actually imprisoned them, it is for a, or several, very good reasons.

In some evocational magic current, the evocation of a demon is considered as the dominance of this very default in the personality/psyche/archetype, for them, these spirits are just a projection of the own psyche of the magus, a very complicated and dangerous thing for just a psychotherapy thing... of course, everything is a projection of the "Creator's Mind", but since you are not at the Christ level, don't expect to actually see these entities like "nothing" (believing they don't exist, just in your mind ...God's Mind). Please, don't be so stupid. It is not because Creation is imaginary that these imaginary things cannot destroy entirely your life and yourself, giving you even more darkness and karma than you could imagine. These things are made for that, they are actors of the Fall of the Soul (your Sulphur becoming Black and stinking ...). If you want to understand more deeply this idea of "Creator's Mind" and this level of perception, look at the film Matrix N°1. Curiously Neo, for the scenario, is no more powerful in the other 2 chapters ... ha, Hollywood... but this is partially a true and valid system, yes, when you cannot be tempted, or when temptation is proposed to you and you refuse it, you gain power over this region of your psyche, also, over this very entity. I tend to believe that all spirituality is only this... resisting to the "world of ego" or the duality and gaining "control" (transparency of though and emotions) over it.

Another idea, is that this imprisoning work was to make them cook ... alchemically speaking. As they are already in a putrefaction process (more advanced it is, more the evil spirit is high in the hierarchy), it is an already began process that just need to be achieved... good luck with that. But what is true for me, is that, when you alchemically dominate, i.e, putrefy something, and make it evolve, you have power over the level of its energies. Since you control the manifestation level, you thus, control the other levels contributing to its manifestation, enclosed into this "material" piece of metal or something.

My idea is that, more you can have power upon material Sulphurs, more you can control parts of your own psychic level, this is Alchemy.
I once made oxidize iron, in distilled water. Oh... what a hard time I get from that. I was empty of energy, I could not even walk for 10 minutes long without being exhausted, I was in black opus, bad moods, tired. I made several dreams where a wolf was involved, in the first, I was running after it, in the last, it was on its back, showing me its belly, in a submissive attitude, and i was hitting it with a remote control! Several time I had dreams with wild animals, bears, snakes, spiders, lion, tiger ... always in link with a matter I was working on.

Of course this do not means you have to work upon a lot of materials in order to explore the whole creation.

Fortunately, like in Goetia, when you control a King, you easily control the lesser levels. Matriochka system !

Cobalt, at last ?

Once the distillation of acetum finished, I have a caput of the Sulfur, of a pale pink. I add to it, once cooled, some Spiritus Vini (S.V pure) for the dulcification.

And ... wow, what a nice thing ! All the caput just melted into the alcool, and gave a kind of bright glittering pink, sparkling of little sequins. Very, very nice, it was like a candy, but alcohol is not yet acting upon it, the Sulfur is precipitated.


So, I put it to digest for a while, hoping that the S.V will act and extract the soul of the Cobalt.
... and yes, it extracted it, a beautiful pink, purple violet in mass ! Cobalt is amazing, beautiful. I can't wait to try the Tincture !

More photos to come.

About Cobalt

Cobalt is a little like copper.
We can see that the pinkish colour of its Sulfur can be perceived in the natural state of the metal.

Coblat oxide is of a black/grey colour.

COBALT : From the German word for goblin  or evil spirit, kobald ("Kobold") and the Greek word for mine, cobalos.

Melting Point: 1768 K (1495°C or 2723°F)
Boiling Point: 3200 K (2927°C or 5301°F)
Cobalt was discovered by Georg Brandt, a Swedish chemist, in 1739. Brandt was attempting to prove that the ability of certain minerals to color glass blue was due to an unknown element and not to bismuth, as was commonly believed at the time. Cobalt's primary ores are cobaltite (CoAsS) and erythrite (Co3(AsO4)2). Cobalt is usually recovered as a byproduct of mining and refining nickel, silver, lead, copper and iron.
 Although cobalt is used in electroplating to give objects an attractive surface that resists oxidation, it is more widely used to form alloys. Alnico, an alloy consisting of aluminum, nickel and cobalt is used to make powerful permanent magnets. Stellite alloys, which contain cobalt, chromium and tungsten, are used to make high-speed and high temperature cutting tools and dyes. Cobalt is also used to make alloys for jet engines and gas turbines, magnetic steels and some types of stainless steels.

Cobalt-60, a radioactive isotope of cobalt, is an important source of gamma rays and is used to treat some forms of cancer and as a medical tracer. Cobalt-60 has a half-life of 5.27 years and decays into nickel-60 through beta decay.

Cobalt compounds have been used for centuries to color porcelain, glass, pottery, tile and enamel. Some of these compounds are known as: cobalt blue, ceruleum, new blue, smalt, cobalt yellow and cobalt green. In addition to being used as a dye, cobalt is also important to human nutrition as it is an essential part of vitamin B12.

Generation of Metals

This image shows us something clear : You need a salt, a sulfur, and a mercury, plus, a fire (vulcan = common fire, represented by the old man) in order to grow from a common place or root (represented by the tree) all the existing metals.

The general idea is that there is only ONE matter (made of three principles) that once cooked, and made more or less perfect, is coagulated in the veins of the earth, and give birth to metals.

In order to make a metal perfect, you just have to put it back into it's mine.

Maybe a joge on the spade of the gardener (alchemist) "Elaboro"

"Elabor, in latin mean, escaping from a danger, or elapsing from a place, that no one knows what we became."

Elaboratus, mean "made by art, and properly, with care, elaborated."

This is possibly a reference to the "ora et labora".

The Concipio on the tree, mean "to take several things in the same time".

Vulcan pour the saturnian waters upon the roots of the tree in order to nurture it, see the dew also, coming from above.

In the philosophy of alchemy, all metals are made of the same substance, à different degres of maturity. When you cut the root of a plant, or you put the whole plant out of earth, then, it cannot grow anymore, this is the same thing with metals. If you put in the fire a plant, it is destructed, again this is the same thing with metals.

It is not because metals can melt, that they have to be melted !

About Ens Melissa

Here is an interesting blog about this Primum Ens Melissa : http://magistrium.wordpress.com/

I made a tincture of melissa, it is for me clearly jupiterian as signature, it almost taste like seaweed (lot of "water" energy in it, acting upon the sacral center).

MENSTRUUM is any liquor that serves for the extracting of the essence of anything.
 (The Art of Distillation of John French)

Spiritus Vini, tartarification.
The Science of Menstra is ONE BIG BASIS that's one should know imperatively if one want to do anything in Spagery, Archemy or Alchemy. Otherwise, nothing can happen !

A Menstrum can be dry or wet, composed of volatile part, or fixe part, it can be entirely fixe, or entirely volatile, it can be deliquescent, or not. It can be easely made, or extracted, or with a lot of work. It can be an alcaline substance, or it can be an acid substance. It can even, by time, extract his own sulfur !

With that you can Ex-tract, pull out of the body, its blood, its force, its oil, its sulfury part, the Soul. This is the vampire, blood sucker.

A menstrum can be mineral/metallic, from salts, from vegetables, or animals/humans. They all have their forces and weakness.

A mentrum is a key to unlock the doors of matter. It is a very great thing indeed, because you can make wonders with it.

Plants and Vinegar evolution

The result of the vinegar and the different plants circulated during a month. I notices no effect upon me after the intakes for several days.
The colour is a nice orange/pink, salmon, surely due to the rose I've added to it.

Cobalt evolution

A little photo to show how cobalt's colour under acetum is when in thin layer. A very nice pink.
Maybe like Pink Quartz this metal acts upon the Heart's Level.
