A mythical stone which alchemy practically revolves around. It was desired by a lot of entrepreneurs (see suckers) in the dark ages because of its promise to turn ordinary materials like coal into gold. Naturally, all of those who sought the stone practiced alchemy, and not surprisingly they came up empty-handed.
A Philosopher's stone would be awesome to have, if only it existed in the first place.
Don't waste your life searching for a Philosopher's stone.

A hardened mycelium mass that contains both psilocybin and psilicon. Commonly referred to as "philosopher stones" or sclerotia, they produce a trip very similar if not identical to that of the p. cubensis "shroom" species.
Philosopher Stones are produced invitro, making it much more stealthy and easy to grow as compared to the actual mushrooms the Philosopher Stones are capable of producing.

There are 3 strains currently available:

1.Psilocybe mexicana

2.Psilocybe tampanensis

3.Psilocybe atlantis
Dude! I just ate this sclerotia! I can't believe how amazing this is. I almost have pity on those that say all drugs are bad and are too closed minded to ever improve their lives.
Ha ha Mr. T pities the fool!

Oh my god! I am starting to realize there is so much more to life then buying this materialistic shit!
I need to stop polluting the air and being part of this wretched system. Oh how I love you Philosopher Stones, you have shown me how to be a better and happier person!

An ideal that gives hope to the lost. Some would argue that there's an actual scientific formula combining lead and gold... following an array chart, of course. Greek Mythology relates the God "Mercury" somehow in the transformation process, but there isn't much documentation to support his role in the process other than he too was searching.....and I think he had wings on his ankles. The Philosophers Stone was hands down, The best song ever recorded by Van Morrison. The Philosophers stone gives hope to those searching for a home.
"Man, that guy still searching for the Philosopher's stone....."
or "omg, i love this song, Philosopher's Stone" or, "Everytime I hear Philosopher's Stone I think of Larry" or "No need to search for the Philosophers Stone, its been in your pocket all along"

The CORRECT title for the first installment of the well known Harry Potter book or film series. JK Rowling has personally said that her biggest regret about the series is the name change in some countries, and she thinks of it as 'Philosopher's'.

It makes much more sense calling it 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' as a Philosopher's Stone is a real item that alchemists tried to create hundreds of years ago. Nicholas Flamel is also known to have been working on this. Throughout history, there is no record of any concept known as the 'Sorcerer's Stone'.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is the first novel in the Harry Potter series written by J. K. Rowling and featuring Harry Potter, a young wizard. It describes how Harry discovers he is a wizard, makes close friends and a few enemies at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and with the help of his friends thwarts an attempted comeback by the evil wizard Lord Voldemort, who killed Harry's parents when Harry was one year old.
