Arcane Alembic is a block added by the Thaumcraft 4 mod. When placed above Alchemical Furnace, an Arcane Alembic will receive liquid Essentia from it. Alembics can store up to 32 Essentia of a single type. An Arcane Alembic can output its essentia into any tube or the essentia can be extracted manually with Glass Phials. An Arcane Alembic can also be emptied by holding shift and right clicking on it. Golems can also take Essentia from the machine when provided with a certain core.
Thaumcraft 4 Research Notes
Research aspects in this block
"In the future you will definitely need to have ready access to multiple different kinds of aspects - not just primal aspects drawn from your wand.
Using basic alchemical principles you have devised a way to break down objects and convert them into essentia.
The first step in this process requires an Alchemical Furnace. The alchemical furnace works much like a normal furnace by burning coal to produce heat, but instead of smelting ore into metal, it breaks down objects into a slurry of raw, unprocessed essentia.
The next step in the process is to take the essentia slurry and distill it using an Arcane Alembic.
To work, arcane alembics need to be placed on top of an alchemical furnace. The essentia slurry will slowly be drawn into the alembic and the individual aspected essentia separated out.
If the alchemical furnace is being powered by alumentum, this distillation process is much faster.
You can stack up to 5 different alembics on top of a single furnace.
The essentia can then be extracted out of an alembic using phials."
