Armand Barbault

Armand Barbault

Armand Barbault (April 2 1906 - 1982) was a French chemist and alchemist.

Born in Champoulet, in 1948 Barbault began to rework a process depicted in the 1677 alchemical work, the "Mutus Liber". This involved saturating plant material with dew and performing a complex series of cyclical distillations. Barbault wrote openly about his process in his "Gold of a Thousand Mornings", first published in French in 1969. On publication, Barbault enraged the scientific community by crossing the line between science and magic as if it did not exist.

British film maker Garry Rigby is currently making a film about Barbault called "The Many Faces of Barbault".

Armand Barbault, spent over 30 years searching, not for the Stone, but for a natural Elixer. This medicine was composed of plant sap, dew and powdered gold. When finally developed, Barbault sent his elixer to a pharmaceutical laboratory for analysis. The report yielded "very positive results" when used upon terminal patients. Problems arose due to the cost and length of time of production and his "potable gold" was never marketed as a homeopathic remedy.

Armand Barbault began this work in 1948. he attempted to rework a process depicted in the 17th century alchemical work, the Mutus Liber, published at La Rochelle in1677. This involved saturating plant material with dew and performing a complex series of cyclical distillations. Barbault wrote openly about his process in his 'Gold of a Thousand Mornings', first published in French in 1968. His aim was to produce medicines rather than transmutation.
