Designed to represent change and the seeking of perfection of the soul, mind, and body. The word alchemy comes from the Arabian al-kimia, referring to the preparation of ‘Elixir’ or the ‘Stone’ by the Egyptians. The Arabic kimia, in turn, comes from the Coptic khem, which referred to the fertile black Nile delta soil and also to the dark mystery of the primordial First Matter (the Khem). The word alchemy is said to come from “al khemet”, meaning from the black land. Designed to have a loose unrefined membrane which creates more low to mid range tones and a murky unclear reflection of the player and their surroundings which symbolize a beginning, a primordial state where the building blocks of possibility and creation await direction and focus.
