Nicolas Flamel (prob. Pontoise, ca 1330 – Paris, March 22, 1418) was a successful French scribe and manuscript-seller. After his death, Flamel developed a reputation as an alchemist believed to have discovered the Philosopher's Stone and achieved immortality.
Nicholas Flamel is one of the most mysterious and legendary Alchemists in the World. Like many other Alchemists he started out being relatively unknown. But now his name has been immortalized in books and films. He even gets a mention in Harry Potter. #HappyHubDay
Nicolas Flamel - He's real!! "The essence of his reputation are claims that he succeeded at the two magical goals of alchemy: that he made the Philosopher's Stone, which turns dung into gold and ordinary stones into precious gems, and that he and his wife Perenelle achieved immortality through the "Elixir of Life"."
