Mekkapat is a protective alchemical alloy used in the creation of different Thai amulets.
Very few Venerable ones still master the technique of compounding this alloy
and so amulets made of it are rare and costly.

During the fabrication of Phra Kling amulets at the Temple Wat Intharam (Bangkok)
sulphur vapors may be seen arising from one of the crucibles.

Before beginning their handling of mekkapat the team of specialists receive
the monk's blessing to avert all mischance.

thai amulets casting
The sundry components and melting metals are handled with great care.

venerable thai monk
The Most Venerable Phra Wee Sutha Thibudee, of the Golden Mountain Temple,
starts the amulet producing flow using a very long ladle.

thai amulet ingredients
When some temples make some particularly precious amulets, they sometime collect many different old amulets and melt them together to make part of the alloy used.

alchemic metal ingots
Here are some ingots of alchemical metal seen in a Thai temple.

The basic ingredients of mekkapat are: copper, lead, sulphur, mercury, diverse herbs
and sacred oils. Each master has his own personal formula and therefore bring
forth alloys of slightly different colorings.

There also exists another magical alloy, Mekkassil (or, Mekkasit) with similar properties. Greenish in color, it turns a true green when placed in water. It is easily fractured - never drop a mekkasil amulet or you will see it break! One of the differences between
these two alloys is that mekkassil contains less sulphur than mekkapat.

The act of wearing an amulet made of one of these two alloys renders the wearer unwoundable, just as does wearing lek lai, for a lesser cost and a simpler process
(lek lai is very expensive and hard to find).

lek lai and mekkapat
A lek lai lingam, along with a mekkapat lingam
it is difficult for the novice to see the difference
