The word alchemy comes from Old French alquemie, alkimie, used in Medieval Latin as alkimia. This name was itself brought from the Arabic word al-kīmiyā (الكيمياء or الخيمياء – composed of two parts): the Late Greek term khēmeía (χημεία), also spelled khumeia (χυμεία) and khēmía (χημία), and the Arabic definite article al- (الـ,( meaning ‘The’). Together this association can be interpreted as ‘the process of transmutation by which to fuse or reunite with the divine or original form’.
