After exposure to light, the letters and the bottle glow a vibrant acid green in the dark
Devoting their lives in search of panacea and the elixir of life; alchemists live on the edge of mysticism and science. They tried turning lead to gold, climbed the heights of imagination, and established the foundations for modern chemistry, physics, metallurgy, and medicine.
