The Empire Collection, by Alchemy Gothic, has rediscovered many of the astonishing, lost inventions and scientific discoveries of a heroic and insatiably adventurous bygone age, where gentlemen were recklessly courageous, and scientist-engineers were truly mad!
Alchemy Gothic's facsimiles of amazing and fantastical retro-hi-technology artefacts, created from surviving fragments and archived linen blueprints of the world famous 'Rosensteins' and their contemporary collaborators.
Alchemy Gothic harks back once more to a mythically nostalgic bygone era; the intertwining of high technology with the unexplored potential of Victorian innovation. This Steampunk range takes its cue from the conceptions of famed engineer, Ezekiel Empire Rosenstein. While his most inspired invention – the Galvanic Matter Transpositor – was laughed aside by premier pioneers of his time, recently unearthed sketches and scattered accounts have allowed Alchemy to gather enough information to demonstrate this forgotten legacy.
An early, pioneering (1849-EE Rosenstein), excursion into the world of the x-ray, with a view into the human head! (black glass set into a gothic pewter cross frame.)
Measuring approximately 2 1/2" long (3" including the bale) and 2 1/4" wide, the pewter cross pendant is actually a photographic-style, black glass plate set into a gothic pewter cross frame.
The cross shape is an old and powerful symbol. The four stems of the cross represent the four direction and the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) that make up the realm of manifestation. Just as the circle represents the Infinite, crosses represent the Finite (and thus manifest); all things four-square represent the Finite fixed upon itself.
The x-ray of a human head set in the middle of the cross represents human consciousness seated at the center of manifestation. The Proto-X-Ray Cross can be worn or hung and comes on a 20" antiqued pewter chain.
Gothic Product Information:
The metal used in the manufacture of all Alchemy's pewter products is the highest grade, 92% tin alloy, (to BSS5140 standard), known as "English Pewter". Some manufacturers misleadingly use the term 'pewter' to describe alloys containing lead. This results in inferior, more easily made products which are heavier, softer and of a darker colour, and are much more prone to tarnishing and disfigurement. This WILL NOT happen with Alchemy Gothic jewelry.
