Oil of Calcium or The Sulphur of Coral

Post  BeautifulEvil on Sat Sep 27, 2008 2:40 pm

From solomon levi's post:

Actually I've been trying to find how people make oil of calcium.

Do you know how to do this Beautiful Evil?
Can it be done with vinegar and sea shells since vinegar dissolves calcium carbonate?
Is that a good start?
Sorry to tangent. You can post an answer in a new thread if you like.

Particularly, I've seen how coral calcium is absorbed better by the body, so I thought
alchemical calcium will be even better. I advocate alkalising the body for health.
I was just going to make some m-11 from sea salt. I'll use KCO3 instead of lye.

oil of calcium

Post  solomon levi on Sat Sep 27, 2008 2:45 pm

I've heard of this oil of calcium but haven't found any methods of manufacturing it.
I'm familiar with coral calcium being more easily assimilated, so I thought alchemical calcium would be
even better, just as I experienced with oil of sulphur-vive compared to MSM.
I'm into alkalising the body for health and want to use calcium somehow.

I have a bunch of seashell pieces (calcium carbonate) and I know they dissolve in vinegar.
What would you do then?
Hmmm. I just realised I might follow the recipe for the fixed oil of sea salt which creates
an acetate and then digests with sal ammoniac to fix it.

Any thoughts or insight would be appreciated.

I have a few books at home that mention how to extract an oil/sulphur of coral, but I don't know the process off hand. The best coral to use for this process is red coral, since this is the coral with the most sol-fire, it's more mature than white coral.

I suppose one way to do this is through the acetate process. Grind the red coral into a powder, pour onto this some wine vinegar, lightly digest for a few days, and then evaporate to obtain a powder. Extract this with water to obtain the water soluble salt (calcium acetate). Do the dry distillation to obtain the acetone. It also might yield a sulphur, and if this is the case then we don't have to continue, but if not then we'll need to powder some fresh red coral and add this to the freshly prepared philosophical mercury of calcium. Lightly digest this for a few weeks, and on top (or bottom?) should be a red oil of coral. This is a round about way of doing it, and with this method you may also make a stone of red coral.

Here's another method:

The Preparation of the Tincture of Corals

Take red Corals, break them into pieces and pour on them a common Spirit of Salt and the Corals will be dissolved. This being done, draw off by distillation the Spirit of Salt and edulcorate them well. Then take to one marck of this powder half an ounce of common Sulphur, pulverised, and having mingled it together, reverberate it very gently till all the Sulphur be burned away. Having done so, grind as much Camphor with the Corals and burn the Camphor likewise away. Then edulcorate well the Corals and pour upon them high rectified Spirit of Wine and digest them for eight days and the tincture of the Corals will elevate itself into the Spirit of Wine. Then pour off that which you have extracted and after that draw off the Spirit of Wine from it and there remaineth the tincture of Corals behind in the bottom like a red, fat oil of Olives.

I'll see what I can come up with when I get home.

Sea shells should also work for this, but they're not as alchemically mature as red coral.

Okay. I know lots of methods for coral. I just didn't make the connection that that is calcium carbonate too. Duh.
Extracting from red coral is on my list too.

Here are some pics of sea salt dissolved in vinegar and evaporated to form crystals.Sea salt is cubic. These are pyramidal. Cool!

If I go with the fixed spirit of salt method, can ammonium carbonate be used instead of ammonium chloride?
Can ammonium chloride be made by mixing ammonia with HCl?

THE LIQUOR OR WATER OF CORAL IS MADE THUS

Take sal ammoniac well purified by sublimation, of red coral finely powdered, of each a like quantity. Sublime them so often until the coral will no more rise up. Then take the calx of coral that remains in the bottom of the sublimatory, and put it on a marble or glass in the cellar to be dissolved. That which will not be dissolved, sublime again, and do as before until all be dissolved. So you have the liquor of coral.
Note that if you will have the true tincture of coral, evaporate the humidity of the foresaid liquor. Then extract the tincture out of the powder with spirit of wine, which spirit evaporate to the consistency of honey. And you have a most rare medicine.
This medicine strengthens all the parts in the body and cures all distempers that arise from the weakness thereof.

Not sure, I would stick with the chloride though.

Can ammonium chloride be made by mixing ammonia with HCl?
Yeah, that should be fine. Take some diluted ammonia solution from the store (no additives, etc) and bubble some HCl gas into it from the distillation of common salt or sea salt. You can also add the acid to ammonia, it'll accomplish the same thing. I would look for more philosophical methods to obtain ammonium chloride though. This may not be up your alley, but one of the fixed salts of urine is ammonium chloride (the volatile is ammonium carbonate).

If you have ammonium carbonate, you can add some HCl to it and make ammonium chloride. There's another way, if you dry distill ammonium carbonate you'll obtain ammonia gas, if you react this with hydrogen chloride gas you will obtain a solid ammonium chloride [NH3(g) + HCl(g) → NH4Cl(s)], or you can bubble this ammonia gas through a HCl solution.

Heh, there are many ways to work!

Cool pictures, I like the crystal structure, that's neat. What's the red liquid? Is that wine vinegar?

Yes, wine vinegar.
Thanks for the info.
