A note
With reference to the annotations in the pdf copies above: These were made in the first instance with reference to Jung's comments/references in CW13 about the spirit Mercurius, ff. §256 & §257. Jung's references are directly about the mercurial element whereas the Musaeum Hermeticum is talking about the Philosophers Stone, not mercurius in the sections Jung references…by my reading and understanding.

Other references to this manuscript in Jung's writing:

Volume I

Page numbers reference the original text page numbers in the pdf, not the pdf document page numbering

p78 “Likewise, it (The Philosophers Stone) is a double mercury and Azoth, which, being supported by the vapour or exudation of the greater and lesser heavenly and the earthly globe, cannot be consumed by fire.”
