Queen Luna in alchemy is the embodiment of the receptive female principle possessing the qualities "cold and moist" giving rise to the albedo or white elixir which can transmute base metals into silver. This female principle receives the male qualities "hot and dry" symbolized by King Sol to dissolve the metal into its original creative matter of prima materia. A.G.H
