      Different alchemists had different symbols for the various elements. Many alchemists held their works in secret and would write down their notes in codes using different symbolism and languages. The symbols here are the more commonly known ones.

    I have seen some of these symbols in various books on alchemy and esoteric ism but some I don’t think I have, particularly the 5th symbol with the interlocking triangles. Do you know of any works that makes reference to that one or the source of where it came from?
