The Legend of ‘Lapis Philosophorum’ aka the Philosopher Stone

“Robert Boyle (25 January 1627–31 December 1691) was an Anglo-Irish natural philosopher, chemist, physicist, and inventor. Boyle is largely regarded today as the first modern chemist, and therefore one of the founders of modern chemistry, and one of the pioneers of modern experimental scientific method.” Source Wikipedia
The Philosopher’s Stone has intrigued scientists for centuries and even to this day remains a mystery.
