Alchemical Water Pendant (Gold Plated)
Alchemy is the art and science by which the chemical philosophers of medieval times attempted to transmute the baser metals into gold and silver.
The alchemical/magical symbol for water is an inverted triangle, symbolising downward flow. The downward pointing triangle is an ancient symbol of femininity. One of the four alchemical elements, water has the properties cold and moist and symbolises intuition and the unconscious mind.
The grand objects of the alchemical art were the discovery of a process by which the baser metals might be transmuted into gold and silver; and the discovery of an elixir by which life might be prolonged indefinitely. Religiously, the transmutation of metals can be thought of as a symbol of the transmutation of the self to a higher consciousness and the discovery of the elixir as an affirmation of eternal life.
