Mastering alchemy requires a significant amount of scientific knowledge and many hours of training.
The first step to alchemy is realizing that everything in this world is composed of atoms. The one who discovered this observation from a cosmic point of view was Paracelsus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus Von Hohenheim. What he left behind forms the basis of Lilith's "Hermes Apocrypha," but it also includes everything from the basic alchemy ranging from involving mercury, sulfur, and chlorine, to the methods in transmuting the ultimate treasures, such as the "Elixir of Life" and "Philosopher's Stone." In other words, one needs to understand the basics, and all the hard work and studies of the alchemists of before one's time, before one can properly inherit Lilith's "Alchemy." It is not the research of her's alone; this branch of magic called "Alchemy: was established by combining the work of numerous alchemists of the past. Because of that, it became one of the best ways to understand the fundamental theories and composition formula in the world of magic.
One very important theory is that, even though it's all classified as "Alchemy," there are actually several different strands. Saying that, this type of alchemy will need to learn the macro to perform three stages simultaneously. One would not be exaggerating if one was to say that each individual stage is a form of magic on its own. Putting it simply, first there's "Comprehension," in other words, knowing the composition of each particular material. Secondly "Deconstruction," splitting up the material into small components. even if one masters the "Comprehension" and "Deconstruction" stages, all one would have achieved is a small field of highly destructive magic in a much larger realm. This bring us to the third stage, "Reconstruction". It is because of this stage, that transmuting a simple rock into gold becomes possible, surely, form a magical point of view.
Alchemy is bound by the theory of equicalent exchange. In other words, in the case of mages, when sacrificing ones magic and soul as a cost for the alchemy process. There are many mages who end up turning into monsters as a result of using it too much.
