Does anyone know which strain of shrooms are known as "Philosopher stones"?

What effects do the philosopher stones have? I saw them in amsterdam but they looked kinda funky so I resisted trying them.

Does the sclerotia have substrate inside of it? Or does it somehow grow separate from the substrate and is made up only of pure hardened mycelium?

They are solid. When the larger ones dry, they are still approx. 30 % wet. Living tissue inside.

I found them to be even more slow release then ingesting dry mushrooms. I prefer to eat mushrooms, to sclerotia. Just takes too damn long to get to a nice place without eating alot. Even teas made with them, were slower to come on. Maybe grind them up first, will benefit.
Just my 2 cents, take it or leave it!!!!

The sclerotia swell in the jar/casing like a growing potato and generally don't envelope the substrate. They press it out of the way as they grow larger. If a sclerotia grows irregularly with creases and fissures in the surface, some substrate may get folded in as the sclerotia swells. But generally its just solid nutlike chunks of hardened mycelium. After they are dried they become stonelike and difficult to chew. If you swallow dried sclerotia whole, it comes out in about the same condition it went in with little to no hallucingenic effects. Grinding might be a good idea if you don't like spending the time moistioning and chewing up the lumps of bitter mycelium.

Thanks a lot guys. Thats odd that they seem so popular in Amsterdam even though by your posts they dont seem to be as potent or as tasty as just the good ol mushroom.
