Opus alchymicum


Opus alchymicum, or opus, sometimes called the "work," is the alchemical process of transmuting cheaper metals into more precious ones. Initially the opus alchymicum had four stages: the nigredo (black), the albedo (white/silver), the citrinitas (yellow), and the rubedo (red/gold). After the fifteenth century references to the citrinitas stage were gradually phased out leaving the opus alchymicum with three main stages. A.G.H
