The Philosophical Tree. "From the dead body succumbing to decay at the bottom of the resort, 'the mercurial soul, the spirit, the tincture is extracted.' According to Gerard Dorneus, mercury is 'the mineral root of the tree that nature has planted in the middle of her womb.' All metals emerge from it and its branches, are spread over the whole surface of the world, like the veins in the body. (Gerardus Dorneus, 'De genealogia mineralium,' 1568, in: Theatrum chemicum, 1602). Miscellanea d'Alchimia, Italy, 15th century."
