"Androgyna,  Adamic moulds,

The gilded book, covered with very thin ore

The Salt Well of the Wise, The object of Small value, The ore of the Wise

The metallic ore of the Wise, the Chaos of the Wise, Occidens Sapientum, 

The dry and shrivelled plants of the wise, Chalybem of the Wise, 

The Philosophical litharge or Moon Scum, The Bolum of the Wise

The Terram sygillatam of the Wise, The Terram Catechu of the Wise

The ore of the Wise, Bismutum rubrum

The red-vitriol-ore of the Wise

Arenam rubrum marinam Philosophorum

Corpus vivam or the living Body,

Materia particularis, which the Artist can give every university, when required."
