In our first article, I ranted a little about the general set of expectations that modern psychonauts have for our Spagyrics, and for the more subtle forms of plant entheogens in general.

Revered since ancient times, Amber has been used in jewelry, medicine, and trade for thousands of years. Homer, Aristotle, Plato, and Pliny the Elder all mentioned Amber in their writings, and it was prized more than gold in ancient Greece.
Amber washes up from deposits in oceans and seas around the world, and the Greeks believed [...]
