An element of magic is based on historical events that led to the discovery of phosphorus. The story begins with an accidental discovery Hennig Brandt made about 350 years ago, while he was experimenting to find a way to make a stone that could turn metals into gold. The reader will find out about the first experiments, when urine was boiled, and later experiments with animal bones and making modern day safety matches.
