Greetings, Mr. Morrow, this comment isn't actually related to your post, but I'm writing it out of desperation. You see, I've been wracking my memory trying to recall a little piece of information. Or more precisely, where I first encountered a little piece of information. I hope you can help.

It concerns an alchemical symbol; a diamond with a hook descending from it. Supposedly, it's a symbol for filtration. I thought it might make an interesting element in a tattoo design I'm working on. But now I'm trying to remember where I first encountered this symbol, and its meaning, and I'm coming up blank...except for a vague impression that it might have been in one of your books.

Does this ring any kind of a bell with you?

I haven't brought alchemy on stage very much in my fiction. Could you be thinking of Theodore Roszak's "The Memoirs of Elizabeth Frankenstein"? Lots of alchemy in that novel.

I found it! It was in Diane Ackerman's 'An Alchemy Of Mind'. Finally I can rest...
