Substance description Trituration of pure Carbonate of Potassium. Hahnemann: “Half an ounce of purified tartar, moistened with a few drops of water, is pressed together into a ball, which is rolled up into a piece of paper and allowed to dry; then it is brought to a red heat between the glowing charcoal of a grate (or of a draught furnace). It is then taken out, laid in a porcelain saucer and covered with a linen cloth; it is allowed to attract moisture from the air in a cellar, which causes the alkaline salt partially to deliquesce, and, if it is allowed to stay there a few weeks, it will deposit even the last trace of lime. A clear drop of this preparation is then triturated three times with 100 grains of sugar of milk each time, within three hours, to the one millionth powder attenuation (Kali I); one grain of this third trituration is then raised by twenty-seven dilution vials to the decillionth dynamization (Kali X).”
