Information about Alchemical Symbols
Recently, while meditating, a symbol appeared to me.
After some research, it appears to be a symbol from alchemy.
My knowledge of it is slim to non-existant.
I was hoping someone could provide me with a place to find out some information about the symbols.
I hope this site has what you are looking for.
The best reference I've found for identifying symbols, alchemical and otherwise, is Fred Gettings' Dictionary. I've referred to it many times. Alas, it's very hard to find these days.

It would be worth your while to see if a local library has a copy. You might be surprised.
Adam McLean's site, that Baxian referred to, is a great resource for alchemical references. It's the LAShTAL.com of Alchemy, in my opinion. However, you will not find a compendium of alchemical symbology and meanings on the site or in any of Adam's excellent study courses. Take anyone's interpretation of the meanings behind the symbols with a dram of Salt. There's a reason they call this material 'esoteric'! 🙂
I studied Alchemy for several years before getting into Crowley's work. I wouldn't trade that foundation for anything.
