The Alchemy Website
Most complete website on alchemy that I have found. Several of the external links I have in my sections lead to this site. We're talking tons of information here, people. From the historical, to the modern evolution of the philosophies of alchemy in the spiritual sense.
* A collection of alchemical texts in English with links to texts in other languages.
* A section on East Indian Alchemy or Rasayana.
* A section on Islamic Alchemy.
Another good website, dedicated to Chinese Alchemy. Written in English.
