The alchemic laboratory is set in an environment that symbolizes magic and superstition. Inside there is a stone container from the 17th century with a lid and a latch used to make theriaca, a fireplace with an alchemist's oven with a still on top and a distiller next to it. There are also alchemist's tools such as the "retorts", bells for covering pharmacological preparations and a tool for separating unmixable liquids such as oil and water.
