Quintessence is light in its purest form. It is also one of the six elements. It's very powerful and can be used to leap to specific places. It is used to make frissyn, the only substance able to stop Everblaze. It was also mentioned that its alchemy symbol is a Q with an X going through it.
Acquiring Quintessence Edit
Quintessence can only be acquired from unmapped stars, and it's illegal to bottle it. You can bottle it using a stellarscope, like any other star; however, the scope gets extremely hot, as Sophie discovered in the first book. Sophie accidentally bottled it in the first book, causing a Tribunal.
An elf can bottle Quintessence from the unmapped star Elementine. Since Quintessence is technically light, elves can leap with it, as Sophie did in Book 3: Everblaze, although it is extremely uncomfortable.
