Etymology[edit]

From Old French alkimie, arquemie (French alchimie), from Medieval Latin alkimia, from Arabic الكيمياء (al-kīmiyā’), ال (al, the) + from Ancient Greek χημεία (khēmeía) or χυμεία (khumeía) originally “a mingling, infusion, juice, liquid, as extracted from gold” and later “alchemie”, perhaps from Χημία (Khēmía, black earth (ancient name for Egypt)) and/or χυμός (khumós, juice, sap). (Compare Spanish alquimia and Italian alchimia).
