Alchemy is a philosophical and protoscientific tradition practiced throughout Europe, Africa, Brazil and Asia.
Alchemists were extremely secretive. The Voynich Manuscript, an illustrated codex written in the 15th century, has never been deciphered and is believed by many to be an ancient alchemist’s lab notes.
Alchemy began as a quest to understand the world around us and became the forerunner to modern chemistry. The four main processes of alchemy (dissolving, separating, reconstituting, and recombining) are still used today.
While alchemists failed to turn a base metal into gold, it turns out their pursuit wasn’t entirely frivolous. In 1980, American scientist Glenn Seaborg changed a small amount of bismuth into gold with the help of a nuclear reactor. While it’s been proven possible, it’s extremely difficult and outrageously expensive to produce gold this way.
