Alchemy (word derived from Khemennu "Land of the Moon"; an ancient name for Egypt) is the study of the nature of elements, their interactions and transmutations.

The Egyptians taught the Arabs alchemy who advanced the science, while it also was developed in China. The best tract written was by the Arab scholar Jabir ibn Hayyam.

Behind the scenesEdit
