Historical Background

The philosopher's stone (Latin: lapis philosophorum; Greek: chrysopoeia) is a legendary alchemical tool, or element, supposedly capable of turning base metals into gold; it was also sometimes believed to be an Elixir of life, useful for rejuvenation and possibly for achieving immortality. For a long time, it was the most sought-after goal in Western alchemy. In the view of alchemists like Sir Isaac Newton, Nicolas Flamel and Frater Albertus, familiarity with the philosopher's stone would bring enlightenment upon the maker and conclude the Great Work (the successful completion of the transmutation of base matter into gold and more importantly the metaphoric spiritual transformation that would accompany the accomplishment).
