I wish to start learning alchemy in gerenal. I know the path is hard but I have a strong base knowledge on others magics such as folk, divination, and cultural magics. I wish to know where I can start and some reliable books I can read.

Well Alchemy is both science and magick combined. So start learning the parodic table.

Well that is a good start, one of the first things I can tell you about alchemy is that alchemy is but one of three parts to something called Hermetic Philosophy, the other two parts are Astrology/Astronomy and Qabalah. Alchemy is mainly focused around the idea of purifying the body, symbolized by the philosopher's stone which is suppose to give immortality to both humans and metals. Some books I would first recommend would be to look at would be things like "The Way of the Crucible", "Real Alchemy", and later down the line "The Practical Handbook of Plant Alchemy", and some ancient text like "The golden chain of Homer". If you feel like it you can send me a message and I can tell you some more (teaching currently some other people on this site to).

I would suggest starting with The Weiser Concise Guide to Alchemy by Brian Cotnoir. It is well written and explains the basics of alchemy in a easy to understand way. Hghly recommended.

it is not something you want to get into without consulting your spirit guardians... trust me.

seek them first, and your center,... you must be wise before tapping into real alchemy. The kind that is more magick than science.
