A. Hi, cousin Muhammed.

At first I didn't know whether you were asking for serious details about gold refining, which might have included questions about some sort of organic scavengers (plant extracts). But then another letter came in from our favorite scammer, saying:

Gold is created from Silver and Copper, these powders are taken and mixed with a plant 'Nalla Vayulu' and heated for 3 days at 1000 degrees, Gold is formed in tons, no idea how Low Temperature Nuclear reactions are formed, think of Cold Fusion and Hutchison effect. If you are taking this as joke then you are a nut case.

...and I realized that your question is possibly motivated by your being enticed into a scam. Please spend some time on some scam-watch websites and try to get a step ahead of the scammers instead of being a day behind. You can't make gold from plants or other metals. Sorry. Good luck.

A. This letter depends on what he really meant. Is he asking how to make 10 or 14 or 18 K gold from 24K gold, or is he asking how to extract pure gold out of an alloy, or is it a dream of making 10K gold into 24K gold by alchemy. The last one would be either foolish or a scam. I cannot tell by what is written. English is probably a second language, so we should cut him some slack until he tells us what he really meant.

A. Hi cousin Prabhuram. That word was not my term, it was a quotation from someone else; the term in question may be Tamil in origin, but sorry, I don't know. But the IMPORTANT word is in English: SCAM. Cold fusion was discredited.

Ted et al., You haven't been keeping up with nuclear physics. Gold can be produced from other elements using a particle accelerator (proton bombardment) or nuclear reactor (neutron bombardment). This is the technique by which the trans-uranium elements are created. Glenn Seaborg reported on gold formation via nuclear transmutation circa 1980.

Bad news #1: high cost. "Because lead is stable, forcing it to release three protons requires a vast input of energy, such that the cost of transmuting it greatly surpasses the value of the resulting gold." (http://chemistry.about.com/library/weekly/aa050601a.htm) You need $Billions up front for a particle accelerator (see the basic cyclotron design at Argonne National Lab -- their underground accelerator is large enough that buffalo roam within the Der Ring Des Niebelungen!). The operating costs run $1 to $400 per milligram (Oak Ridge National Laboratory 1996 prices for medical isotopes), or $37500 to $1.5 Million per troy ounce.

Bad news #2: the gold will be radioactive -- not very healthy, plus it will decay! ORNL can solve the radioactivity problem with additional neutron irradiation for a sizable surcharge.

Hope this helps.

A. Researching the old tamil medical palm script, I came to understand that gold can be transmuted by following methods:

mercurius dissolve

biological TREATMENT

MIX FIVE METALS

CAN BE TURNED IN TO GOLD

A. Actually, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory created a small amount of gold (one-billionth of a cents worth) by hurling ions of carbon and neon at a bismuth atom. The ions knocked off particles of the bismuth leaving the lighter element gold.

Tyler Santos

Q. Just out of curiosity...
How are gold and other metal being formed in a natural way?
What I mean is...I guess that these metals take an awful lot of time to form, but under which conditions and from which kind of materials?
I don't have the illusion of creating gold or other of such metals, but it seems to me that, by speeding up natural processes it could be done.
Or am I thinking too simplistic?

Kind regards,

A. Here's the thing, folks. Scam victims are desperate & illogical, and will clutch at straws to try to recover a portion of their lost life savings. So each time we talk of nuclear fission and fusion reactions and how it may be possible to create an atom of gold in a nuclear accelerator, the site gets a couple of personal letters from sobbing victims begging for us to share more detail on how they can conduct this fission reaction.

Gold and other elements are created in nuclear reactions in star systems; they are not occurring on the earth. It is not a "natural process" that you can accelerate like rusting. We now understand elements sufficiently that we no longer should waste our lives on alchemy as if this was still the dark ages.

Gold and more Gold is the demand right now. The answer is right in front of you. What I meant was that take a piece of coal and synthetically make Diamonds out of it. Sell them and buy Gold. Feels more logical then nonexistent chemical reactions :-)

Hehe, put it this way: the day man creates a way to make Gold taking in consideration that someone out there might already found a way to make gold, Gold could loose its value overnight and humanity could be lost... a huge amount of our trading system depends on the trade of gold even if is on paper bills or digital transactions.. so if you found a way keep it to your self make money, live rich, get all the girls you like, just don't let others know.. trust me this is one invention that will have governments across the world looking to bury you...

LENR and Alchemy

Alchemy is a form of chemistry and speculative philosophy practiced in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and concerned principally with discovering methods for transmuting baser metals into gold. The word "alchemy" calls up the picture of a medieval laboratory in which a wizard broods over the crucible that is to bring within his reach the Philosopher's Stone, and with that discovery the formula for the transmutation of metals.

That is why I was surprised to read Mitsubishi (a Japanese multinational conglomerate comprising a range of autonomous businesses which share the Mitsubishi brand, trademark and legacy) hopes to go beyond just low energy nuclear reactions to low energy nuclear transmutations.

"These transmutations will be an energy source that will be portable, will produce rare earth materials, and will have the capacity to transmutate radioactive waste. They've changed the acronym from LENR to LENT. And, unlike competitors such as Rossi and Defkalion, they plan on using resources other than palladium, platinum and nickel." (cleantechauthority.com/defkalion-announces-lenr-date-mitsubishi-enters-lenr-market/)

Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) using nickel and hydrogen is a clean, very very cheap, and super abundant energy technology, but can it also be used for transmutation? Nuclear transmutation is the conversion of one chemical element into another.

"Artificial transmutation may occur in machinery that has enough energy to cause changes in the nuclear structure of the elements. Machines that can cause artificial transmutation include particle accelerators and tokamak reactors. Conventional fission power reactors also cause artificial transmutation, not from the power of the machine, but by exposing elements to neutrons produced by a fission from an artificially produced nuclear chain reaction. Artificial nuclear transmutation has been considered as a possible mechanism for reducing the volume and hazard of radioactive waste." (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_transmutation)

In February 2011 scientists were given access to a sample of pure nickel powder which had been used in a LENR reactor for 2.5 months. Their analysis showed that the powder contained several other substances, mainly 10 percent copper and 11 percent iron. (www.nyteknik.se/nyheter/energi_miljo/energi/article3144827.ece)

According to Robert Godes LENR is not a nickel-hydrogen fusion reaction. Nickel is merely a catalyst, and it is the hydrogen that yields heat.

"A tiny amount of hydrogen protons are converted into neutrons. These newly produced neutrons are soon captured by hydrogen ions or other atoms in a metallic (e.g. nickel) lattice near to where the hydrogen ions were converted to neutrons. The captured neutrons generate heat because the new atoms that are one neutron heavier shed excess binding energy as heat to the lattice, resulting in a dramatically clean, low-cost, hi-quality heat output."

"...Evidence suggests this reaction involves the synthesis of neutrons, which accumulate on hydrogen dissolved in a matrix (lattice), which progresses to deuterium, then tritium and on to quadrium that decays to helium." (oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/New-LENR-Machine-is-the-Best-Yet.html)

To summarize, it is a fact that conventional fission power reactors cause artificial transmutation by exposing elements to neutrons. Furthermore, according to Godes, the LENR Ni-H reaction occurs when hydrogen protons are converted into neutrons and captured by hydrogen ions or other atoms in the nickel lattice. Finally, evidence for LENR transmutation is the sample of nickel powder used in a LENR reactor for several months which showed several other substances, including copper and iron.

Can Mitsubishi discover the formula for the practical transmutation of metals, fulfilling the dream of mankind since the Middle Ages? We already strongly suspect that LENR transmutes nickel into copper and iron, so alchemy suddenly doesn't seem so speculative anymore.

Formation of Gold or other metals by any process was the dream project during past times. I've gone through many procedures (not practically) and also read about the logic and science behind it written by the researchers. Although chemicals and other things available during past was very limited and also the process was very critical. Above all, the science behind this process was not to be explored among common people, so they used symbolic languages which were understood only by eligible persons. Nowadays those processes are available but the real sense behind that is not clear i.e. the Terms and the raw materials used.
I've seen many verses of Sanskrit language describing about the formation of Gold using Copper, Silver, Zinc etc. but the materials listed in that is completely out of sense.
My view is that Nowadays we have series of chemicals, more elements, advanced equipment & technology and above all the Computer Power. The computers can be used to analyse the data and process to reach up to the final result without actually doing the practicals. This way we can do the job of hundreds of years in few years. Remember one of the reasons why we could not reach up to any process of making gold is that the Time Factor. The time needed for understanding the logic & process and to continue with next alternate process was very long. The total time slot needed for this may take hundreds of years. So the persons died before reaching to the final goal. And the story was repeated with coming generations in past. I think I can write a book on this and its taking more time & space. Sorry. See you later.

I am not completed in making gold, but near it. I think it is very hard working. My recipe is 10 gram zinc and 10 grams mercury, mix and heat in black sand powder in pan, not open mouth. It becomes white powder. Then melt copper so some bit mixes in. It changes colour like gold, but it's not gold yet. Please help me.

A. Gold cannot be made by mixing other alloys from low cost. It may be possible very very high cost. But with the help of some herbal plants, we can separate the gold from other alloys like brass or copper. Every alloy has mixed with Gold by little quantity. We can separate that gold from alloy with the help of some medicinal plants.

Q. I also do some experiments to convert silver and copper and mercury into gold but I succeeded with help of mercury + silver to make pure silver, but could not get success in gold from other metals. Copper is very near to convert gold but it can be done only with help of some herbals and that is still in under process any way. If anyone have any experiment please let me know. I will be happy for more experiments with some one. With best regards,

!! There is a serious Shri Sukta sutras of 3rd Century in old language which gives the formula and entire process to convert mercury into gold. But there is also a caution mentioned that if not done without proper care, one may lose eyesight and or go bald. This is more so because the vacuum facilities where not available in those days. These sutras are 4 wherein only the first 3 describe the right mix and process whereas the 4th one is only a caution. These sutras I understand are also inscribed somewhere in Tajmahal in Agra and shown on TV documentary. Even scientifically mercury and gold are just one proton separated I suppose.

Personally, I like to think we've learned something in the intervening 1800 years though. You are correct that mercury has one extra proton, but I don't think you can remove that pesky little bugger even with a thermonuclear bomb, let alone by mixing with other materials :-)

Hi Ted, here is some useful link for you and also for viewers,
www.aagam73.blogspot.in/2009/06/mercury-converted-2-gold-in-1942-in.html
The history tell that there was a process called alchemy/kimia which claimed that gold can made from the copper and mercury, also there is several procedure to purify the mercury before it. Please don't think I am doing this for any kind of intention. I am also want to know the procedure, if we read the history carefully, there is several cases to making gold from mercury and copper, till now the Tibetan people know about this secret procedure.

When I was a young teen I was intrigued by the "perpetual motion machines" at a Ripley's "Believe It or Not" display. After eventually learning why each particular design was discredited I looked at an additional design. But by the time I had seen a dozen or more designs discredited, I had found a hundred more proposals, and I realized that I could never get through the infinite line of potential design tweaks "one at a time".

In engineering school I was finally taught the principles of thermodynamics and how & why 100% efficiency was impossible irrespective of the specifics, so I needn't waste any more time on yet another perpetual motion idea. And I also learned enough chemistry & physics to see why alchemy was likewise impossible so that I didn't need to waste time discrediting every report of alchemy one herb at a time. I hope you don't choose to waste yours ... there's a lot of herbs :-)

A. In Tamilnadu, India, there are some people lived in 11th century. We call them Siddhar. They are masters in making medicines using plants. We having history that they make gold using some plants and copper. But they didn't teach this technique to anyone. We are siranjeevi. That means they live so long. Some people saw them in this 21st century too.

So my conclusion is IT'S REALLY POSSIBLE.

A. I am a chemical constant since 1988. Many chemical factories I have run and just a mineral processing and two chemicals factories are under my supervision.
Conversion of one element to an other element is possible with simple chemical and physical way at up to 1000 °C temperature.
Some light weight elements's electrons loss their attraction for nucleus and their nucleus begin to do bombardment on their surrounding atoms. This make cause of conversion.
If these light atomic weight elements or their compounds are mixed tracely with heavy metals (mercury, lead, bismuth) or their compounds and then temperature is raised up to 1000 °C for ten minutes, many elements will make in which Gold will in excess because Gold is very to heavy metals.

I do not have any reason to prove it to anyone but I can assure you it is quite possible, with little expense. Telling people they waste their time is a dis-service with the internet this day and age one can put together the full picture of what needs to be done from such writers as Fuccanelli, Sendivogious, and several others.

Your hostility towards alchemy does not disprove it, nor do your opinions about your science background have led you to believe.

It is in fact possible to make gold out of 5 metals and my finding was not that difficult either; you just need to forget all the nonsense you're force fed from birth.

Scientists claim all gold on earth came from asteroids and some magical nuclear reaction which simply cannot be true since there are no asteroids performing any such nuclear reactions in space and I can prove it without a doubt. All things visible in space are nothing more than light, not solid objects; and, no, satellites don't exist either. Many things are not as you were told. For example, the sun is not nuclear, it's electric; and it also is not billions of light years away it is in fact only a few thousand miles up in earth's atmosphere just as the moon is. And like other so called planets the moon is not solid either. So guess what, nobody ever landed on it. Anyway before I bore you all with more truths you must clear your head of the garbage it's saturated in before you can comprehend reality.

1. 1/4 oz. silver shavings 99% pure
2. 3 oz. sulfur [affil link] powder (pharmaceutical grade)
3. 10 oz. Cinnabar with no TRACES of gold (also known as a mineral, Mercuric Sulfide, HgS)- powder it
4. 1 quartz geode
5. 4 12 volt car batteries
6. 2 lead (Pb the element) copper electrodes

Place all shavings and powder into Quartz Geode, connect car batteries to equal 48 volts at 3 amp per minute, place leads into powder in Quartz Geode. Wait 25 minutes.

Produces 1.75 ounces of gold

Don't get greedy, do exactly as stated.

Larger amounts at one time will produce radioactive gold, you can repeat the procedure to make more gold. Wear mask!! and gloves!

A. You can make gold, earlier in Chankya era, he used to make gold, mohammed ghori invaded several times but still chandra gupta empire was very rich, because chanakya made wealth artificially, another thing in India in earlier days gold was not mining, but still in india coins, jeweleries, etc were made of gold that too before christ. and I have done one experiment for the same and it was 99% successful. Take 65% gold, 20% copper, 15% silver, heat and cool continuously for 90 days, the entire thing will become gold.

A. Even though, going by logic, you're right, there aren't any person who does it live.
So consciousness says, it's not possible.

If someone does, he wouldn't be alive , too difficult since Gold used to be backed by central bank around the world except, for a few decades for now, usd taken place of gold.

Theory of only supernova explosion can make gold also seems flawed.
This Alchemy subject is really interesting though.

Call by Ted is also correct. People may fall into this, since people who're selling these, didn't make any gold by themselves .

I think some comments are being a little unkind to the Alchemists.

Until the age of enlightenment in the 16/17C, alchemy was the blanket study covering all fields of science. The modern uninformed criticisms are readily dismissed. The search for the elixir of life is barely different from the efforts of modern health researchers, albeit with rather less ambitious targets, and transmutation of base metals into gold can be understood as a justification of an application for research funding and not unreasonable lacking the principles of an atomic theory. If they could change black rock into iron or green rock into copper, why not lead into gold? Furthermore religious doctrine of the time demanded belief in transubstantiation, a much more radical concept. The magical element of their beliefs should, perhaps, be viewed in the light of homeopathy or contemporary, and even current religious beliefs.
In reality, some charlatans excepted, the alchemists were skilled metallurgists, chemists, perfumers and pharmacists of their day. Although their understanding of the underlying principles were limited, their empirical investigations formed the basis of modern science. Long before the 13C; alchemists had de!eloped the skills of crystallisation, distillation and metal extraction to a high degree.
Much of their belief was based on the teachings of Aristotle and the later teachings of the Muslim Abu Muhammad al Jabir ibn Aflah(1100-1150), Anglicised to Gerber.
To dismiss alchemy is to discredit well-recognised scientists up to and including Newton, whose alchemical manuscripts amount to over 650,000 words and was described by Keynes as the last magician.
We owe them much.

? We have postings on this thread from more than a dozen people who feel they are ever so close, including some who claim to be desperately poor but are spending their time and the last of their money on this anyway. So, with the benefit of an additional 350 years of refinement, exactly how do we make gold from copper, silver, and plant extracts? I say we can't, and we should be very clear about it :-)

Luck & Regards,

A. I see that I failed to make myself completely clear.

There is no possibility of making gold by any chemical means.

My point was that until Dalton introduced his atomic theory, there was no way of knowing this.

It is sad to see that some people still do not understand that it is impossible.

But we should not blame alchemists for what they did not know.

The evil that men do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones.

! Mr Ted, why do you say alchemy is a pseudoscience -- many great minds have worked on it. There was a time in England that a rule was passed not to multiply gold. No one will take time to bother about a thing which does not exist; I myself have worked on it and achieved success
