The Alchemy of Stone series evokes the energy experienced during personal transformation and transmutation. Alchemy is popularly known as the search for the Philosopher's Stone. This was a symbolic reference to the Monad or Fifth Element. The Philosopher's Stone was not a physical rock or stone, but rather a spiritual idea or transmission to a higher state of being. In that state, it was believed that you could turn lead into gold. In the physical it could also make a person a genius, cure all sorts of ailments, bring about spiritual awareness, transformation and transmutation. The 33 original paintings in this series are alchemical in nature and of their own creation using acrylic, oil and gold leaf on various canvas sizes. The Alchemy of Stone paintings are featured in Jereb's book Alchemy of the Stone. This book details his unfolding spiritual journey, as recorded in his journals, on the way to creating Stardreaming.
