Welcome to The Alchemy Empire Collection

Here you can rediscover many of the astonishing, lost inventions and scientific discoveries of a heroic and insatiably adventurous bygone age, where gentlemen were recklessly courageous, and scientist-engineers were truly mad!

View the growing collection of Alchemy Gothic's facsimiles of amazing and fantastical retro-hi-technology artifacts, created from surviving fragments and archived linen blueprints of the world famous 'Rosensteins' and their contemporary collaborators. Browse through our selections of Alchemy Gothic's most recent additions to the Alchemy Empire Collection, and learn of its history and most famous characters. 

Alchemy 'Steampunk' designs revolve around Ezekiel Empire Rosenstein's, (or 'EER', Victorian 'descendant' to the original, 18th century Dr. von Rosenstein), incredible Galvanic Matter Transposition System for 'pronto mass remotion'- the earliest known 'teleporter', or 'three-dimensional fax machine'! Known as the 'GMT', this sensational invention was sadly, completely lost to science. However, from a combination of surviving fragments, anecdotal evidence and recently-found early drawings, Alchemy Gothic have reconstructed several of the Rosenstein GMT's principle elements.
