Definition of the noun Aludel
What does Aludel mean as a name of something?
noun - plural: aludels
- a pear-shaped pot with an opening at each end, formerly used for sublimation.
Aludel: An aludel is a subliming pot used in alchemy and medieval chemistry. The term refers to a range of earthen tubes, or pots without bottoms, fitted one over another, and diminishing as they advance towards the top. The lowest is adapted to a pot, placed in a furnace, wherein the matter to be sublimed is placed. At the top is a head to retain the flowers, or condensation, which ascends. An aludel was used as a condenser in the sublimation process and thus came to signify the end-stages of transformation and the symbol of creation. Also called the Hermetic Vase, the Philosopher's Egg, and the Vase of the Philosophy.
