In medieval times, people studied alchemy – the predecessor to modern chemistry – seeking a Philosopher’s stone that would turn lead into gold. Though we now know that this stone doesn’t exist, chemistry still has some tricks that might have impressed a medieval alchemist! With the “Alchemy” set by MEL Science, you’ll perform a “transmutation” process, turning a copper coin “silver,” then “gold,” grow mesmerizing metal trees and create a real copper mirror!
