For over a thousand years, two main trends characterized alchemy. On the one hand, there was a philosophical pursuit of the transmutation of metals, of the philosopher's stone, and of the elixir of life. This pursuit was shrouded in esoteric terms associated with secret rituals. On the other hand, practical operations were being carried out with constantly improving instruments. Different heating methods were developed, such as sand and water baths. The alembic, for instance, was not a very efficient condenser, but its introduction signaled the first rudimentary beginnings of the art of distillation.
