Uses of Alchemy
There are several occurrences in the series and in history when Alchemy has been used. Here are some of the things it can do:
- Transmutation: Changing a solid to a liquid or a liquid to a solid, and changing them back again.
- Philosopher's Stone: A material of incredible power which can facilitate alchemical practice and temporarily grant immortality. The recipe for the Stone - which can be found on the seventh page of the Codex - changes every month; attempting to use the same recipe twice can have disastrous effects.
- Attraction: Leygates can be redirected using some principle of mutual attraction.
- DNA Manipulation: Alchemists can manipulate or activate sections of DNA; this is exemplified by Nicholas Flamel growing a small forest from a hardwood floor in The Alchemyst.
