One of the few practicing alchemists in the modern era, Robert Allen Bartlett explains what the ancients really meant when they used the term Philosopher's Stone and describes several very real and practical methods for its achievement. Is the fabled Philosopher's Stone an Elixir of Long Life or is it a method of transforming Lead into Gold? You can be the judge of that for yourself after reading the new book on Alchemy - "Real Alchemy." (With a Foreword by Dennis William Hauck, editor of "Alchemy Journal," alchemylab.com and crucible.org. The book also includes a full Index and Bibliography.) Bartlett has been a practicing alchemist for over thirty years and was a student of the twentieth century's most highly recognized alchemist, Frater Albertus, at Paracelsus College beginning in 1974. After receiving his degree in Chemistry in 1979, Bartlett was appointed Chief Chemist at Frater Albertus' Paralab. He is a member of the International Alchemy Guild at the Adept Level.
