If you look at the periodic table, what is happening when Pb (lead) is being turned into Au (gold) is that lead has outer electrons that can be stripped off, leaving gold. It is this process that people want to be able to do, so they can turn plentiful metals and non-metals, into gold.
An Alchemical symbol of the Intimate Christ dressed with bodies of Gold. When acquired, this stone gives powers over nature. It is lost when thrown in water (through fornication). When the stone is dissolved in (sexual) water, then the metallic Spirit is melted, and interior Magnes escapes. It is said when this happens, one dissolves the stone in water on Saturday (Saturn = death). The Philosophical Stone is passes through phases of development: black, red & white. It is also the Cubic stone of Yesod (Parsifal Unveiled), the stone that Jacob anointed with oil and "a Stone of stumbling, a rock of offense."
Nicolas Valois: “It is a Stone of great virtue, and is called a Stone and is not a stone.”
An alchemical symbol of the Intimate (Chesed, Atman). Our Internal Angel. Synonymous with the Tincture of Gold and the Divine Crocodile Sebek.
