Real World Background

The Philosopher's Stone was a mythical object, sought after by alchemists, which could transmute lead and other base metals into gold. (It has gained fame in the modern world as the desired magical object in J. K. Rowling's first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - though only through the British edition of Rowling's book; the U.S. edition changed the title to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.)
