One of the few practicing alchemists in the modern
era, Robert Allen Bartlett explains what the ancients
really meant when they used the term "Philosopher's
Stone" and describes several very real and practical
methods for its achievement. Is the fabled
Philosopher's Stone an Elixir of Long Life or is it a
method of transforming Lead into Gold? You will be
able to judge for yourself after reading this new
book on laboratory alchemy. There are dozens of
ancient formulae and experiments, and a Foreword by
the practicing alchemist Dennis William Hauck. A full
Index and Bibliography are also included.
Bartlett has been a practicing alchemist for almost
forty years and was a student of the twentieth
century�s most highly recognized alchemist, Frater
Albertus, at Paracelsus College beginning in 1974.
After receiving his degree in Chemistry in 1979,
Bartlett was appointed Chief Chemist at Frater
Albertus' Paralab. He has worked as a miner of
antimony in Idaho and as a geochemical assayer for the
mining industry. He is a member at the Adept Level of
the International Alchemy Guild.
