Some High Spageric process use an Alkahest in order to open and reduce metals into their first matters, and to create a humidity that will bring fermentation and blackness in order to start a new cycle of life in it.
It was a week ago. I used 2 gold leaves for the test, and 15 drops of the Alkahest. The process took maybe, 10 minutes.
After cooling it, I saw a grey dust at the bottom of the flask. I wondered if my flask wasn't clean at first. But no, a new element was there, under a metallic form.
Iwill not give all the process, but what Ican say it that obviously, a special part of the metal (the 'metalline' one) mixed with a specific part of the Alkahest (a structural one), created, with the energy released by the fermentation process of gold under the influence of vulgar fire and the cold fire, a transmutation or, a generation of a metal/recombination of elements.
I had to make several other tests with gold under various forms and this Alkahest to understand what element was at play.
