Collabor88 this month is Modern Alchemist. Alchemy is something dear to my heart, it's this intersection of science and magic, with secret codes and symbols. It's about physical and spiritual transformation, the search for perfection and eternal life. In other words, it's a bunch of really neat things rolled into one.
I revisited some of the very very first things I made in SL- crouched in backyards behind people's houses who had rez on, because I didn't know what sandboxes were- necklaces with alchemical symbols. Now they are meshed up (less building in places with rez on required!) with less seams and nicer shapes, and much nicer chains. There are three lengths, with three variations of the two longer, so you can stack multiple necklaces in various combinations. they also come with HUDs with ten metal options- 3 silvery, 3 golden, 2 coppery, 1 black, 1 darkened bronze- chains and pendants can be changed independently or together.
There are 16 symbols in the original Collabor88 release, more symbols to follow at some point!
The Seven Metals with the symbols of the heavenly bodies: Sun (gold), Moon (silver), Mercury, Venus (copper), Mars (iron), Jupiter (tin), and Saturn (lead)
The two other of the Three Principles (with Mercury): Salt, and Sulphur
The Four Elements: Air, Fire, Earth, and Water.
The Philospher's Stone, the goal of the Work.
Phosphorus, trapper of light, provider of spiritual illumination.
Antimony, representing the wolf and beastial nature, and also a really great symbol all around (I prefer this more complicated one over the upside down Venus symbol!)
To be found at Collabor88 this month!
