Chrysopeas or mysterious philosopher's stone combination of alchemical elements that among the other virtues would have the one transforming metal in gold.
Why did the alchemists choose gold?
Why did they see in it the elevation from matter to spirit?
The answer is found in antiquity, around the eighth century. Abū Mūsā Jābir, the most important Muslim alchemist, analyzed the four Aristotelian elements (water, fire, earth and air) on the basis of their qualities (hot, cold, dry and humid) coming to the hypothesis that all metals were composed of these elements and their characteristics.
From this point of view, gold was perfectly balanced and harmonious. Each characteristic was divided into four elements, while the other metals had more variability and were less balanced.
This theory, in later times, also reached the Western world and convinced alchemists from all over the world. From here they began to study metals and how to create the "CRISOPEA" la philosopher's stone .
Quetzalcóatl is the Aztec name of the feathered serpent god of ancient Mesoamerica, one of the most important deities for many Mexican and Central American civilizations. Among the Aztecs, whose beliefs are well documented, Quetzalcoatl is revered as the god of wind, Venus, dawn, merchants and the arts, crafts and knowledge.The name "Quetzalcoatl" comes from the nāhuatl "quetzal [li] -cōhuātl". "Quetzalli" indicates something divine or precious (in some contexts it is intended as "beautiful", even not in body) while "Cōhuātl" means "Snake". According to some, it literally means Quetzal's snake with feathers (which refers to something divine or precious), although not everyone agrees. In fact, the Quetzal bird at the time was not called that. The various meanings referring to his name in other Mesoamerican languages are quite similar. The Mayans called it Kukulkán
