I recently had an idea, to create some certain alchemical tools, with which all alchemists could operate to perform their experiments in alchemy. And so... look what I have in my mind.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Basic Alchemical Tools

Since the alchemy has ever discovered, to all alchemists it is popular to have their own alchemical workshops or workrooms, in which they can experiment with the substances, which can be found in the World of Caelereth, by using special tools and vessels. Through generations, these tools and vessels were simply called "Tools of an Alchemist" and only alchemists understand how to work with them and know how to create them. As the most of these tools are made out of a glass, the main methods of creating them are with the help of glassblowing, tinkering and blacksmithing crafts, therefore true alchemists need not only the knowledge on the properties of the substances, but also the appropriate knowledge in, already mentioned, crafts.

In the alchemical workshops, most commonly use special tools and vessels, which are made out of a glass and sometimes even out of a metal. These most important tools and vessels are vials, flasks, boiling glasses, funnels, measuring vessels - measunderi, meabuls, medicine glasses, and the like.

Types of Basic Alchemical Tools:

Overview of glass vessels: In this type fall all those vessels that are made out of a glass. There are vessels that are used to measure a certain amount of liquid. There are vessels, which are used to heat aggressive and corrosive tempered substances, therefore they are very resistant to the high temperatures, as well as to the sudden changes in amount of the substances, and there are those vessels, which main advantage is elevated durability. Some of these vessels have lowered durability against heat, therefore they can easily rupture if heated, and that is a thing that should not be done with some of the vessels of this type.

  • Boiling glass (Gnomish: Firnel simars): The boiling glasses are cylindrically shaped vessels, which can be long and small in length. The length of the long boiling glasses must be twice as big as their diameter. These glasses can be with a snout or without it, with measuring lines drawn on their sides or without them. The capacity of these glasses can be various: long glasses can have a maximum capacity of two, four, six, ten, sixteen, twenty-four, forty, eighty, one hundred and twelve sips, small glasses - 1/5, 2/5, one and up to two hundred sips. It is restricted to heat boiling glasses on an open fire. They can be heated only on closed heating surfaces, like on a home furnace, and in various kinds of baths. (click here and here to see the pictures)
  • Flask (Gnomish: Flog): The flasks are conical shaped vessels with a flat bottom and a narrow neck. They are made out of a glass that has a high resistance against the aggressive natured substances and high temperatures. The capacity of these flasks is various - starting with 2/5 of a sip and up to two hundred sips. In appearance, they differ by the length of a neck and by their diameter. These flasks use for making the solutions or during the researching euxperi. You should remember that these flasks can be heated only on the closed heating surfaces. (click here to see the picture)
  • Funnel, vi, fillion (Gnomish: Gnufilim): The glass funnels, that are also called vi or fillion, in the workshop of an alchemist can be used for various goals - filtration, separation of solutions, for pattering solid or powdered substances into the other vessels, or for pouring liquids into the other vessels etc. Therefore, they can vary in appearance. A funnel is a conical shaped vessel that has a tube, that is molten to its top, and this tube has a delicate truncated end. The size of a funnel is determined by its diameter. Usually alchemists use only eight different sized funnels, which diameters are: 1.) three nailsbreadths and two grains, 2.) five nailsbreadths and two grains, 3.) six nailsbreadths and four grains, 4.) one palmspan, 5.) one palmspan, four nailsbreadths and four grains, 6.) two palmspans, 7.) two palmspans, four nailsbreadths and four grains, and 8.) two palmspans, nine nailsbreadths and four grains. (click here and here to see the pictures)
  • Meabul (Gnomish: Ertubelgic): The meabul is a round, flat-bottomed flask with a narrow and a long neck. On its side is drawn a measuring line that is in the middle of the neck, and shows a certain capacity. If measunder can measure various capacities at a time, then meabul is created to measure only one certain capacity at a time. There are meabuls of various capacities - one, two, four, six, eight, ten, twelve, twenty, forty, and rarely eighty sips. Meabuls are used to make the solutions with a precise concentration. To make a precisely concentrated solution, first, you have to place the meabul on the horizontal surface. Then, by using a funnel, 1/2 or 2/3 of a meabul fill with the solvent and add powdered substance or liquid that has to be dissolved in already poured solvent. After that, gargle the vessel to mix up the reagents. When you see that all powdered substance has dissolved, add the rest of the solvent until its surface almost reaches the line and gargle the vessel again. Add the last drops of the solvent intently until the surface of the solution reaches the line. It is highly restricted to warm up the meabuls, because the warmth can make them wider in diameter, therefore badly affecting the measuring results. There were situations, when warming up a meabul results in its rupturing. (click here to see the picture)
  • Measunder; meacyl (Gnomish: Ertumefit; ertumaril): The measunder, or differently called meacyl, is a cylindrically shaped vessel, which has a several measuring lines that are drawn on the side of the cylinder and shows a certain capacity. Each line has a value of 1/25 of a sip. There are measunderi of various maximal capacities - 1/5, 2/5, one, two, four, ten, twenty, forty, and eighty sips. To correctly measure a certain amount of liquid, you must pour the liquid into the measunder until its surface reaches the line you need. Measunderi can also be various in some technical details. Some of them can be with a spout and some - without it. They can be wide or thin in diameter, short or long in length. The bottom of measunder also is very important. It has to be smooth to ensure that measunder will stand on the table still and not slanted to the one or another side, otherwise there is a possibility to measure an incorrect amount of liquid, that will affect lasting euxperi and as a result there will be untrue, or sometimes even unwanted, outcomes. (click here to see the picture)
  • Medicine glass (Gnomish: Rum simars): The medicine glass is a conical or cylindrically shaped vessel, that has a measuring lines on its side, which are showing a certain capacity. Each line has a value of 1/5 of a sip. As well as measunderi and meabuls, medicine glasses can also vary in capacity, but the alchemists mostly use those medicine glasses that have the maximum capacities of two, four, ten, twenty, and forty sips. If measunderi and meabuls are used for measuring precise amount of the liquid, then medicine glasses are used only for measuring an approximate amount of liquid. (click here to see the picture)
  • Rounded bottom flask (Gnomish: Soldelmicran flog): The rounded bottom flasks have a neck of various length and diameter, and their bottoms are totally rounded, therefore such flasks can not be placed on the horizontal surface in vertical position, but can be fastened to a fastening rod. The capacity of the rounded bottom flasks, that have long necks, can vary from four to one hundred and twelve sips, but the capacity of the rounded bottom flasks, that have short necks, can vary between two to forty sips. These flasks are used for heating liquids during the long time period on the open fire. There are also the rounded bottom flasks with more than one neck. Such flasks are used in order to deliver liquids or gases away or to the appropriate vessel of an alchemical apparatus. There can be up to four-necked round bottom flasks. (click here, here, here and here to see the picture)
  • Table flask (Gnomish: Duberflog): The table flasks are rounded, flat-bottomed vessels. The flat-bottom insures flask's stability on the horizontal surface. The table flasks can have various lengths of a neck and capacities - starting with one and up to two hundred sips. The usage and resistance of these flasks are the same as a simple flasks. (click here to see the picture)
  • Vial (Gnomish: Mun): The vials are a small, cylindrically shaped glacial tubes, with closed lower ends. Their length can vary from three nailsbreadths, four grains up to two palmspans, six nailsbreadths, four grains, but diameter can vary between two nailsbreadths and two nailsbreadths, four grains. The vials are used only for working with a small amounts of the substances, therefore the vials should be filled no more than 1/4 to 1/8 of their total capacity. It is restricted to fill the vial full. You should begin to heat a vial on the open fire, in direction from a top to its bottom, otherwise, heating a vial in an opposite direction the substance, that is inside the vial, will slop out of it all over the place, and if it is very explosive or corrosive substance, the outcome can be very unpleasant. During the euxperi, the vial should be held in the hand, but when heated - it should be fastened to a fastening rod, which is made out of an iron, or it should be placed into the vial claw. The vials are placed and held in vial stands (clean vials should be placed with opened end downward, but during euxperi - with opened end upward). After the euxperi, the vials should be washed very carefully. (click here to see the picture)

Overview of porcelain vessels: Some porcelain vessels are durable and resistant enough to the influence of the aggressive natured substances. That is why they are generally used only if there is a need for strength – grinding and mixing the solid substances, or differently called Earth substances - Yrth Peryodiqa, into the powder, and there are porcelain vessels that are even much more resistant and durable. Therefore, some of them are used for heating of the substances on the open fire. However, the porcelain vessels have their own disadvantages - they are heavy, expensive, and not translucent.

  • Crucible (Gnomish: Crubibel): The crucibles are a conical shaped porcelain vessels with a flat bottom. The crucibles are very much like the tiny bowls, except that the crucibles are much more resistant to the heat and sudden changes of the temperature than the tiny bowls, therefore you can put the crucibles into the furnace without a fear that they may rupture. If a tiny bowl you use to heat or evaporate the substance, then a crucible you can use only to melt a solid substances, like metals and the like. The crucibles can be made out of a quartz and a black iron, but usually alchemists use those crucibles that are made out of a porcelain. As well as the tiny bowls, hot crucibles also are restricted to hold and take with bare hands. When you want to heat something inside a crucible, at first, you should fasten it into the crucible claw and only then, you can start heating it by taking the handle of the claw, in which is fastened the crucible. Doing so, you avoid being burned heavily. (click here to see the picture)
  • Mortar (Gnomish: Gno tiglim) and Pestle (Gnomish: Tiglim kig): The mortars are a massive half-spherical shaped vessels that are made out of a porcelain, have a thick sides, and are used for grinding a solid substances. To make the usage of a mortar comfortable enough, each of them needs a pestle that is in an appropriate length and size. The outer surface of a mortar, excluding its flat bottom, and a handle of a pestle is covered by a glaze, but mortar's inner surface and the head of a pestle is mated and porous. Such construction ensures the grinding of a solid substance into a powder. A glaze does not cover the mortar’s flat bottom only to make it still, if put on the horizontal surface. The mortars can be made out of a various materials - grey iron, black iron, copper and glass, but most commonly are used those mortars that are made out of a porcelain. They can even be made in various diameters and sizes. Working with mortar, you must remember to fill it no more than 1/3 of its capacity to ensure easier work with it during the euxperi. It is restricted to heat mortars, because on warm surfaces or above an open fire, mortars may often rupture. The mortars are also restricted to place in water baths, because their flat bottoms soak in a very large amount of water and mortars become very heavy. The only way that you can heat the substance, that is inside of a mortar, is by the warmth of the sun or by placing the mortar near some kind warm source, like the home furnace. (click here to see the picture)
  • Tiny bowl (Gnomish: Ifin cegil): The tiny bowls are a tiny porcelain vessels with a rounded bottom. A glaze covers the bowl’s inner surface, but the cover on the outer surface of the bowl can vary. The sizes of these bowls are defined by their diameters, which can vary between two nailsbreadths, four grains and one fore, one palmspan, one nailsbreadth, three grains. Overall, there are eight sizes of these bowls and their capacity can be various - starting from one sip to one hundred and eighty four sips. The tiny bowls can be heated on the open fire, in the furnaces and in the water baths. They generally are used for heating the substances and for their evaporation. It is restricted to take and hold the hot tiny bowls with bare hands. When you want to heat something in it, at first, you should fasten it into the bowl claw and only then, you can start heating by taking the handle of a claw, in which is fastened a bowl. Doing so, you avoid being burned heavily. (click here to see the picture)

The other tools of an alchemist:

  • Alcohol lamp; spirit lamp (Gnomish: Alcohols fir kig): The alcohol lamps, or differently called - spirit-lamps, are used for producing flame for boiling and warming the substances. Of course, the same effect can be achieved by warming the vessel in or upon the furnace. The alcohol lamp is a jar that is made out of a fire resistant glass. The lamp is 7 nailsbreath in diameter and 4 nailsbreath high. The top opened end of the jar has a narrow neck, that is approximately 1 1/2 nailsbreath in diameter and 1 nailsbreath high, and it is closed by a small metallic lid that has a hole in its center, through which is coming out a thick wick. The wick should be in contact with an alcohol, that is inside the jar. In order to make the wick burn, you should wait approximately one day to let the wick absorb the alcohol, that is inside the jar, and when you'll try to light the wick up, it will produce a flame, because of absorbed alcohol, that ignites once being in a contact with a fire. The alcohol lamp has a small addition that is made out of a glass, but can also be made out of a metal. This addition looks like a simple glass that should be placed over the lamp in bottom-up position after the work is done, in order to extinguish flame of the lamp. There are no other flame extinguishing methods, because this is considered to be the most safest way how to extinguish the flames of the alcohol lamp.
  • Claws for the tiny bowls and crucibles (Gnomish: for tiny bowls - Ifinglirek, for crucibles - Cruglirek): These claws look like a simple fastening rod's claws. They have the same usage and are made out of the same material as a simple fastening rod's claw, but the difference is in size and they have no screw. For tiny bowls usually use the claws that are no more than two palmspans, one nailsbreadth, four grains in length. For crucibles are used two different sized claws - one of them is one ped in length, but the other - one fore, one palmspan, six nailsbreadths, three grains in length. The longer crucible claw is used, if you need to put them out or into the furnace, but the shorter crucible claw is used, if you need to heat the crucible on the open fire.
  • Glass rod (Gnomish: Simarsfilec) and metallic spoon (Gnomish: metallic spoon): The small glass rods and metallic spoons are used for variety of tasks. The small glass rods, which can be one palmspan in length, are used for mixing liquids, but the small metallic spoons, which also can reach only one palmspan in length, are used for heating the substances over the open flame or for taking some solid or powdered substances, because substances are restricted to take with bare hands. In reference to this, among the alchemists there is a saying: "You will never know how substance will show itself, when touched with bare hands."
  • Fastening rod (Gnomish: Umeg fer) and it's details: In alchemical workshop often are used other, much complicated devices and for their creation are used fastening rods, fastening rod's claws (Gnomish: Ferglirec), or also called - fastening rod's branches (Gnomish: Ferfilec), and metallic rings (Gnomish: Steeloitil). With the help of these tools, it is possible to fasten the vials, flasks and funnels to the fastening rod. If you wish to make some kind device, which would consist of various vessels, you should use glacial tubes (Gnomish: Simarli mef (Simarli - "glacial", tube - "mef"), plural form: Simarli mefi) with the corks (Gnomish: Kret - "cork", plural: Kreti), to close the vessels and make the connections between them. It is important to remember that before placing corks inside the tubes, you should moisten them from the outside, to make them better get into the opened ends of the tubes. The tubes you should hold near the cork, otherwise there is a possibility to break them, and have your hands cut by broken glass. The fastening rods are made only out of a metal - black or grey iron, and look like a simple rods, which are one ped high and one nailsbreadth thick, and one of their ends is molten to a board, which is two palmspans in length, two palmspans wide, and several nailsbreadth thick. The board also is made out of a metal. The fastening rod's claws and metallic rings also are made out of the same metal as the fastening rod. The fastening rod's claw is a tool that looks like a claw, in which you can fasten a vial, flask, or any other tool, and then, with a help of a small screw, which is on the claw, you can fasten it to the fastening rod. The metallic ring looks like a rod on whose end is a ring. Usually these rings are wide enough to make the round bottomed flasks stand still in these rings and not fall through them. The metallic rings also have a screw, which helps to fasten them to the fastening rod.
  • Vial claw; vial branch (Gnomish: Munglirec; munfilec): The vial claw looks exactly like a claw for tiny bowl and have the same usage. The alchemists named them differently only to ensure the order in the workshop - each tool should be in the correct place and should be used by an alchemist as he or she wishes.
  • Vial stand (Gnomish: Munfer): The vial stand usually is made out of a wood. It looks like a small, empty, wooden box, whose one side has many holes that are wide enough to put the vials through them and make them to hold still in the stand. The vial stands are used in situations when you need to put a vial somewhere aside, if it contains some kind substance, that will be useful in euxperi later and should not be sloped all over the place.

Alright... this is want I had on my mind... I know, I know... this information should be reorganised and equalized for the world of Santharia, that because I HOPE that in here is someone who could help me with that. Hope you'll enjoy this!!! grin grin grin thumbup

A glacial rod? Does it cast Frost Ray 5/day?

(i think that should be a glass rod)

I'm not sure we have fire-resistant glass, and at any rate, it all sounds a bit to modern, i think.

Well... yes it sounds like too modern, but that's why I need someone who can help me forming this idea in the way Santharia could accept it. grin

About glacial rod... well... it also can be called like glacial bar, billet or gad. Glacial rod isn't a magical thing, Tehuriden. grin

Well... if you have no fire resistant glass, then what are we waiting for?  grin Just let's begin developing time!!! grin grin

Yes, it's a very good idea, and I say that as the person who should've come up with it.... (wry smile)

I'd be pleased to help you rewrite this in more Santharian terms, Lionhorse.   We need more medieval names - you haven't considered the alembics, the crucibles, the retorts, and so on, while 'test-tubes' are far too modern.  But glass IS fire-resistant, up to 90 periks, which is more than enough for most alchemical purposes!  See the list:

alcohol boils 8
water boils 10
cooking oil ignites 30 to 35
alcohol burns 36
Candle flame  80 to 140
glass turns liquid 90 to 95


Anyhow,  the concept is excellent, and deserves to go up linked to the Alchemy entry and its other siblings.  Let's get some further ideas and names down in this thread.

Oh, we also need to add in names and descriptions for the processes, something I've had on my mind for a while.  Perhaps this would be the best place for that?   Santharian versions of "solutio, seperatio, calcinatio", etc. and descriptions of how distillation, reduction, and so on work.

Let's rename this "Basic Alchemical Processes and Tools" and invite some of our gnome friends in to help as well!

About the basic alchemical processes, then I can tell that there are only seven most common and basic processes: Calcination, Dissolution, Separation, Conjunction, Fermentation, Distillation and Coagulation. If you wish I can even provide you with information about all these processes.

And about the namings of the tools I'm still thinking. I hope that this evening I'll post here my ideas. Alright?

Thank you, Lionhorse; I'm actually quite familiar with the processes involved, but I appreciate the offer.  Perhaps we could think about how to give them all unique fantasy/Santharian names?  The gnomes will have their own nomenclature, based on Gnomic, but there should also be human ('Tharian') names as well.

Looking forward to some further ideas.  For now, I'm going to bed before midnight for a change!

About tools, which I listed:

Here are some namings, which I thought out:

Test-tube - also can be called "vial";
Boiling glass - I think it doesn't need any Tharian naming;
Conical flask - can be called simply "flask";
Rounded bulb - can be called simply "rounded bottom flask";
Stand bulb - can be called simply "table flask";
Medicine glass - I think it doesn't need any Tharian naming, because with term "Medicine" Santharia is already familiar;
Measurement cylinder - "measunder" - fusion of words "measurement" + "cylinder" = measu- + -nder. To make it softly sounded, if the first variant is too harsh - "meacyl": derived from words "measurement" + "cylinder" = mea- + cyl-.
Measurement bulb - "meabul": derived from words "measurement" + "bulb" = mea- + bul-.
Filler - "vi", because fillers look like a letter "V" and from it's bottom there is something like a letter "I". Look by yourself here. grin  If not... then you can call them "funnel" or simply "fillion"; derived from word "fill" + -ion (to soften the sound of word);
Porringer - can be called "quartz bowl", because it is sometimes made out of quartz, due to the great quartz's fire resistance, also can be called "small bowl", because it looks like a really small bowl (see for yourself here.);
Mortar - I think it doesn't need any Tharian naming, because it was known in Medieval period;
Pestle - I think it doesn't need any Tharian naming, because it was known in Medieval period;
Crucible - I think it doesn't need any Tharian naming, because it was known in Medieval period; although if it is necessary then we can call it something like "bleiru"; derived from word "crucible" by reforming it's bold letters with places: -ru- + -ible = bleiru;
Stand - can be called "metallic base", because other tools are commonly attached to it and it usually holds the difficult alchemical apparatus constructions and is made of metal, can also be called "setallic"; derived from words "metallic" + "base" bold letters = -se + -tallic, can be called "metallic rod", because it is high and made of metal, "base rod" or "fastening rod", because other tools are commonly attached to it;
Stand clamp - can be called "fastening rod's claw (or) hand", because it is attached to the stand (fastening rod) and usually something is grabbed by this claw or hand (clamp);
Stand ring - "fastening rod's ring" or simply "metallic ring";
Glass rods and metallic spoons - "glacial mixer", because usually small glass rods are used for mixing, or "glacial branch", because it is usually in the same length as a small branch = 1 palmspan = approx. 10 cm. About small metallic spoons... no comments... let it be as it is.
Small alcohol based lamp - "alcohol lamp" or "spirit-lamp", because inside these lamps are liquids, which are similar to Santharian Spirit of Pine and alcohol (on Earth - C10H16, turpentine and C2H5OH, ethanol) - very simple.

Not wanting to get caught in this discussion; 'glacial rod' still isn't a word, as far as Google is concerned.

Excuse me, Miraran... grin You are wrong about glass rod, that it cast something. It is casting nothing!!! grin It's just called like that - glass rod, and it doesn't mean that, if somewhere else it is called as I called it in here, it is the right thing, which you see in my provided information.

Simply...

Yeah, we all have that problem with Miraran's jokes... I find that the best strategy is to smile anyway, just in case there was a joke in there somewhere :P

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
