In 1669, Hamburg alchemist Hennig Brandt attempted to create gold by distilling 50 buckets of urine. First he evaporated it until it grew maggots, then he stored it until it turned black and distilled it. When not stored in water, the “transparent, waxy” phosphorus glowed in the dark and spontaneously caught fire.
