Robert Bartlett:
Real Alchemy
One of the few practicing alchemists in the modern era, Robert Allen Bartlett explains what the ancients really meant when they used the term Philosopher's Stone and describes several very real and practical methods for its achievement. Is the fabled Philosopher's Stone an Elixir of Long Life or is it a method of transforming Lead into Gold? You can be the judge of that for yourself after reading the new book on Alchemy - "Real Alchemy." (With a Foreword by Dennis William Hauck, editor of "Alchemy Journal," alchemylab.com and crucible.org. The book also includes a full Index and Bibliography.) Bartlett has been a practicing alchemist for over thirty years and was a student of the twentieth century's most highly recognized alchemist, Frater Albertus, at Paracelsus College beginning in 1974. After receiving his degree in Chemistry in 1979, Bartlett was appointed Chief Chemist at Frater Albertus' Paralab. He is a member of the International Alchemy Guild at the Adept Level.

Dennis William Hauck:
The Emerald Tablet - Alchemy for Personal Transformation
The words preserved on the ancient Emerald Tablet contain the essence of the alchemical teachings, and have had an important influence on many Western spiritual and religious traditions. Ostensibly concerned with turning base metals into gold, alchemy is in fact dedicated to transforming the lead of self into the gold of spirit. This brilliant history of alchemy traces its sources and chronicles its evolution - and shows that alchemy is a useful, practical guide to spiritual growth. Each of the seven steps of alchemical transformation - Calcination, Dissolution, Separation, Conjunction, Fermentation, Distillation, and Coagulation - is presented with hands-on techniques and exercises. Drawing on the author's personal experiences and the testimonials of others, based in solid scholarship and illustrated with remarkable engravings, The Emerald Tablet provides access to a rich spiritual tradition.

He explains how these natural substances can be used for the enhancement of sexuality, muscle relaxation and massage, initiation, spiritual growth, and astral projection.

Robert Allen Bartlett:
The Way of the Crucible
Alchemy is the ancient sacred science concerned with the mysteries of life and consciousness as reflected through all Nature. It is a harmonious blending of physical and subtle forces which lifts the subject, whether it be man or metal, to a more evolved state of being. The Way of the Crucible is a ground-breaking modern manual on the art of Alchemy that draws on both modern scientific technology and ancient methods. A laboratory scientist and chemist, Bartlett provides an overview of how practical alchemy works along with treatises on Astrology, Qabalah, Herbalism, and minerals, as they relate to Alchemy. He also explains what the ancients really meant when they used the term “Philosopher’s Stone” and describes practical methods toward its achievement. The Way of the Crucible provides directions for a more advanced understanding of the mineral work — what some consider the true domain of Alchemy.
