Basil Valentine is the Anglicized version of the name Basilius Valentinus, who was a famous alchemist and monk of the Middle Ages.
Antimony in the form of its natural sulfide was known to the ancients and was used by them as cosmetic and medicine. The art of producing metallic antimony was well known by the 17th century. Basil Valentine described its preparation in his work "The Triumphal Chariot of Antimony", a key work studied by students in the art of Alchemy.
