Myths, Folklore & Symbolism: Coal

Coal "A symbol of hidden, occult power or strength, the cold, black coal needs the igniting spark to unleash its dormant energies. Burning coal symbolizes the alchemical transformation of black into red. Charcoal, as wood purified by fire, is also a symbol of purity." (Herder)
