Learned a new word today - Nigredo

elizabethannlopez:

Nigredo: the point in alchemical symbolism when the impure metal is reduced to blackness ready to become the prime material, the very substance of creation.

In analytical psychology, the term became a metaphor ‘for the dark night of the soul, when an individual confronts the shadow within’.
