Alchemy existed at the crossroads of science, philosophy, and medieval mysticism. Their apparent mission was to transform base metals into gold, but the alchemist's quest was also a personal and spiritual one, a quest for wisdom, purity, and transcendence, through which the alchemist himself is transformed. Each of our alchemy pendants is specially treated so that they shimmer like gold when they catch the light.
These symbols represent the base elements of the alchemist's work. You'll notice there's some crossover with the symbols of Astrology with elements such as with, Gold (Sol), Mercury (Mercury), Iron (Mars) and Air, Fire, Earth, Water.
Chains are purchased separately. All chains are hand-finished antiqued brass and designed especially to match our pendants. Visit the chains & Accessories section of our shop to choose your preferred length and style!
