Hi,

I noticed that when we practice several distillations GW after you get a black oily tar.

This tar placed in digestion and playing with temperature (above and below) gives a lot of withe salt in the ball on top (the middle is closed).



By increasing the temperature we get the oil out of a yellow and red



and there must be very careful pressure increases very quickly. Anything can break.

But during the yellow oil leaves, it appears the doves of Diana : white vapors.



It must be very careful because the pressure goes up very quickly. Everything is breaking.

Hence the following idea

Every beginning is the same but you must stop the harvesting of white salt before the appearance of white fumes.

At this point you must use a 'respirator 'as you see here:





the end of the pipe is bent and goes out the window of the room. Only the pressure released.

We can push the fire very hard without much risk, and oil red leaves.

I kept them in a bottle three days. (without heating) :


And after 6 days:

Here are the results gathered from the extraction:



There is full of oil and salt

Hi Everyone,
Well, they say no 2 animals or specimens are the same so,
a picture is worth a thousands words... or at least some comments.

I needed to explore some written theories

On the left - Mature
On the right - Immature
Both are two weeks putrefying yet totally different, especially...
the Shipwrecks

Or Crystal Trees? Wow! These I've never seen B4

Nick? ... your thoughts

Blessed is this world

Hi,
Just wanted to show another angle. Interesting I thought, as when
backlit, the Crystals appeared clear but when lit from side, they
seem reddy-brown.


I was very surprised to see how quickly the Ammonia Cloud, which
appeared within a couple of days, has completely fallen and settled.
In the other jar, the cloud is slowly settling with an entirely different
characteristics.
Regarding PH
the left - 7
the right - 9

Just wondering if I should leave and see if the trees grow, or
start getting them out while I can.

I decided to decant and remove crystals in order to dry.

These are a first for myself and a worth while test.

Here is another Pic, it reveals what a mass of stix produced.

I am still not 100% sure what these are?
Am inclined to think one thing but...
Ahhh, the mystery whence operating alone

Hello,
The rains of spring are appearing but yet more snow falls.
Soon April/May, will be here and collection of Dew but in the meantime...

I am having wonder and questions regarding our Philosophical Mercury and
adventures with the Wet Path. In doing so, we need to seperate our trinity of substances. And my wonder is what our Earth and Oil, may look like.

As for Earth, when dried and cleansed, I question could I have found them. Knowing that no 2 mercuries are the same and nor are the results, and as well that, the matrix may vary as well. I give 2 examples:
[img][/img]
This is much darker than I imagined but yet a stone
and this;
[img][/img]
(the bottom tube) I once read of, "shiny marble-like flakes"
Could these both be? Or not at all?

What about my Oils, collecting with a Feather, has been difficult and not too fruitful but yet, if not collected in time, does it not fall to the bottom and upon being washed and dried, not resemble a powder?
[img][/img]
And this has a sweetish scent to it.

And lastly I propose our Spirit and its gift of Frost like flowers, which, are yielded and captured. But in my case lost, as it has become apparent to myself upon re-examining older pics. The time I used one of Nicks' ideas yet managed to crack my Jar - releasing the stench and hurrying my actions resulting in loses. At the time I did not realize what I had found.

Just some thoughts and queries

Good Luck Everyone

Information Clarification*

I mentioned how Nick, once mentioned using a Jar with
a Cork Stopper, through the lid. When using a Simple Distillation
Method before advancing to proper Glassware.

But, my use of Vinly Tubing, was by own design and though it
worked for Practical Experience. It is not suggested for any use
when hoping to create anything for Health Reasons.

The Tubing, when heated potentially will release Bisphenol-A (BPA).
This Chemical is Bad for your body. If in doubt Google news items
regarding Children Bottles, Toys and Bisphenol-A (BPA).

As well we have seen how Copper Tubing, has it's own issues.
Be careful, safe and not stupid. None of this fun is worth hurt.

Hello,

So, I've been experimenting again, while I await Springs' arrival and the
presence of the Super Moon! It is supposed to be the closest to Earth in
18 yrs. Still a little early here in Canada, but the temps' have been up and the Birds, have back and are a singin'. Saturday night I will capture some rays.

Well, after having pulled the Needles, from one batch and the Brownish Powder, from another. I decided to combine the two and see how they'd
react. The PH, for both was roughly 2.5 pts apart. I don't know too much
about PH swing shifts, having never intentionally performed one.

But a week later, I examined the test, and there was a huge amount of
Precipatant and much floating around. After decanting and washing with
bottled Distilled water 5 times, I gathered what I believe to be Earth. It
was quite Fluffy while wet and all smell or scent, was removed.

Hey Kirk,

The ph swing process as I understand it is specifically only for gold (and perhaps other metals I don't know) to shrink the size of the clumps of molecules that stick together. Through a process you make the ph go up high and then down low and each time is one swing and each time this breaks up the amount of gold molecules that cling together. The sollution goes through various color changes as it goes on and after about 100 swings it ends up as white powder where the clumps of gold that stick together consist of only a couple atoms. An alchemist could use this white powder gold to 'dissolve' it in a philisophical mercury because it would give it the most possible contact with the gold, even more that a normal gold hydroxide or gold leaf. There is a lot of power in having things at the nano scale because there is unbelievably more surface area and thus reactivity.

On a similar note I was just recently watching a PBS show that talked about making stained glass. They use different powders and pigments for this and then bake them I think but some of them have to be on the nano scale to work. Something about how they do it makes the finished coloring product to be on the nano scale. Gold was used to make red. Because it is so small at just the right size it diffracts the light to give off a brilliant red color. I don't know why it's not white like the white powder gold, maybe because it even smaller. But anyways maybe that is why our stone from gold is red even though I know we are doing more than just taking it to the nano scale.

Bluefloor,
Thanks for the info and insight. I guess that's what made some
of the Church Stained Windows in Gothic Times so special, as the
glass was believed to emanate heavenly rays. It would cool to recreate
some of it now, since it is often referred to as,'an lost Art'. but then I
suppose too, is the Great Work!



PS. Happy Birthday!!
