ABOUT LIMITED COLLECTION:
Alchemy comes only as a desk set. The body in red resin has two opposite nibs with which to write in two different colors or in two different types of nibs. The filling system, with eyedropper, has two separate demo reservoirs, one for each nib. The pen is magnetically suspended inside a display with two dragons forming a circle, which represents the life cycle. A cone-shaped clear inkwell holds the dragons and the pen horizontally. The trims are in sterling silver and gold plating for the 1038 piece edition.
The hermetic thought has an endless number of symbols. We have gathered in the Alchemy Pen the most significant symbols of the Alchemic Opus:
Ouroboros: the figure of a snake eating its own tail. With this imaginary symbol the pagan world wanted to represent the perpetual movement of the world: the unity of everything (the circle), which is distributed in the multiplicity of its cyclic transformations (the coils of the snake symbolize the lunar phases), returns in itself (the junction of the tail of the snake with its head), thus reconciling the apparent contradiction between and the unity and the unity and the multiplicity.
Red Colour: Rubedo, or the final phase of the alchemic process or great work, consisting of the philosophers' stone.
Cosmic diagrams: from the Sylva Philosophorum. They represent the macrocosm and the philosophers' stone with their relationships.
Androgynous: gold and silver. The philosophers attribute the female character (the Moon) to the humid and cold matter and the male character to the hot and dry matter (the Sun).
Alembic: the inkwell. It represents the laboratory of alchemy and the necessary work to complete the Opus. Two are the possible ways: the dry or the humid way.
