Alchemy (Part 287)
Human Ingredients (Part 37)
This is a fourth alchemical symbol for Sulfur (also spelled Sulphur) which is an atom that makes up .3% of the Human body by mass.
"also sulphur, c. 1300, from Anglo-French sulfere, Old French soufre "sulfur, fire and brimstone, hellfire" (13c.), later also sulphur, from Late Latin sulfur, from Latin sulphur, probably from a root meaning "to burn." The spelling with -ph- is standard in Britain, but its suggestion of a Greek origin is misleading."
