"Potions and Symbols. Please make sure you use the correct symbol."
Libatius Borage, Advanced Potion-Making.[src]

The potion elements could be organised in the shape of a table. These symbols had origins in various mystical and esoteric fields and were used in writing chemical recipes, what made those look like abstruse magic incantations.[1]

Mixing up this symbols in a chemical recipe would result in failure, or even possibly, disaster.[1]
