Alchemy 
The Ancient Science
For centuries a number of men of science and
learning spent their lives in the practice of
alchemy, searching for a way to change
ordinary metals into gold. Why did they try?
Did any of them succeed? We know that
alchemists today continue the old tradition
and the age-old quest. Will they succeed?
