Parod Gin Ngern, Parod Gin Thong

Parod Gin Ngern/Gin Thong (Mercury consuming gold/silver) is an ancient wicha that originates from Burma. Luang Phor SriOng from Wat Ban PojSatit is the only monk in Thailand who was able to create Parod Gin Thong and Parod Gin Ngern.
The alchemic process involves taking mercury (Parod) and soaking it in numerous types of venom and toxins. Magical incantations prescribed by ancient formulae are then cast upon the mixture until all the venom and toxins are absorbed and neutralized. Antimony, Lead, Red Copper, Yellow Copper, Tin and Lek Lai are also added, to stabilize the mixture.
The most important ingredient is gold. A Katha is recited to make the magical mercury “consume” the gold until it stabilizes, usually at a concentration of between 5-20% of the total volume of the mixture. For Gin Ngern, Silver and Antimony are mixed in instead. This results in either a gold or silver appearance, respectively.
The mixture is then poured onto the sand to form globules. A ceremony is conducted according to ancient magical procedures to imbue the Parod with magical properties.
