Returning to the subject at hand, chapter seven of Beaumont's work deals with the relation of the genii to the sense of hearing, to which he appends the following curious magical-alchemical material from Paracelsus:.
I shall conclude this Chapter, with a Relation somewhat in this kind from Paracelsus; tho' how far Spirits may be concern'd in the Matter, I shall not determine. He begins the Sixth Book of his Archidoxes , thus. No Man can deny but Compositions of Metals, may Work wonderful things in Supernaturals, which may be made good by many Proofs, as I shall clearly shew beneath; for if you Compound all the Seven Metals in a due Order and fit time, and melt them together, as it were into one Mass, you will have such a Metal, in which all the Virtues of the Seven Planets are joyn'd together; you will find all these Virtues in that one Metal, which we call Electrum.
And beneath he writes; you must know that our Electrum which is Compounded of the Seven Metals drives away all evil Spirits; for in our Electrum , the Operation of the Heav'ns, and Influences of the Seven Planets are stor'd up. Therefore the Ancient Persian Magi , and the Chaldaeans found out and perform'd many things by its means. So far Paracelsus. I may here note, That some Persons have told my self, that they have seen a constellated Plate here in London , made of such Electrum , which, if put under a Man's Pillow at Night, will make him hear Heavenly Musick. The description of the magical bell immediately made me think of something I'd seen a few years back at the Henry Moore Institute , which in showed and exhibition of bronze from the collections of Emperor Rudolph II.
Among the objets d'art on display was a curious bell, supposed to have been cast in electrum magicum. The exterior, shown here, was embellished with florid images of the celestial powers, while - if my memory does not mislead me - there were magical sigils on the interior. Later I was to find similar bells of electrum magicum mentioned in connection to Girardius parvi lucii libellus de mirabilibus naturae arcanis for necromantic experients and discussed in some detail in L.
In one of the 'Solomonic' works appearing in Sloane , the bell replaces the trumpet and is rung toward the east before the magician begins his invocations.

Personally the most interesting item above is Beamont's note about the 'constellated plate'. Perhaps there is an element of 'suggestion' here, relating to the phenomenon of auditory hallucinations that often occur when one is in the hypnagogic state preceding sleep for further anecdotes on this see Sacks' Musicophilia , Mavromatis' Hypnagogia , Zusne and Jones' Anomalistic Psychology , and so on. The story of the constellated disc also reminds me of the commonly recounted belief that Tibetan singing bowls are composed of an alloy of seven metals.

Whether there is truth in this notion, which is often banded about in New Age circles, I am unsure, but it indicates that the fascination with the notion of electrum magicum as having peculiar and magical resonant qualities continues to the present day.
