Name the Elements

I put my various elements for mt ritual practices into cute jars and sealed them with wax.

Thought I’d run a little game here and see who can name all these elements from left to right, 1 to 7.

Here are 3 photos in that order:

You got them all right.

The first bottle is glass which I broke from a thermometer to get the mercury.

And yep the last three are salt, mercury and sulfur (philosophers stone).

I setup my ritual room with candles and elements in this type of way:

That is so cool! Alchemy! So interesting! I know next to nothing about that. Runes and alchemy will be on my list of new things to explore and learn about in 2022!

For the first picture, it looks like a (2) feather, (3) salt or sand, and (4) water.

For the second picture, I was only sure about (1) pink Himalayan salt.

I didn’t guess the broken thermometer glass and mercury (even though, looking back, I remember you mentioned that in a previous post!) and my Kitchen-Witch mind kept insisting that the last jar was garlic powder :garlic: :joy:

Thanks for this fun little guessing game, Tem- and congrats on your beautiful elemental jars! I know you don’t need me to tell you, but handle them with reverence and care (especially the broken thermometer and mercury) and enjoy them! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Those jars look great, Tem. And also thanks for that Alchemical Ascension infographic! :+1:

Here’s a quote by Paracelsus which I hope will inspire you:

“Medicine rests upon four pillars—philosophy, astronomy, alchemy, and ethics. The first pillar is the philosophical knowledge of earth and water; the second, astronomy, supplies its full understanding of that which is of fiery and airy nature; the third is an adequate explanation of the properties of all the four elements—that is to say, of the whole cosmos—and an introduction into the art of their transformations; and finally, the fourth shows the physician those virtues which must stay with him up until his death, and it should support and complete the three other pillars.”

:grin::grin: I have no hope of guessing any of it! But a fun idea, maybe I’ll get better as I learn more.
