Phosphorus was first isolated from human urine.
In 1669, the German alchemist, Hennig Brand, was searching for the mythical
"philosopher's stone," which would transmute lead into gold. For some
reason, he decided that human urine would be a good place to look for it. He
collected hundreds of gallons of human urine, which he boiled down to a
thick paste. When this was heated, and the vapors passed through water and
hot sand, a waxy substance was produced that Brand called "cold fire,"
because it glowed in the dark. Phosphorus was the first element to be
discovered which does not exist in its pure form in nature. Unfortunately
for Brand, it is of no use at all in changing lead into gold.
