EM-Drabbles – Eighty-Nine

It was an alchemist’s dream come true. But this was no philosopher’s stone, transmuting base to pure, nor trade of precious lead for more precious gold, this was the simple distillation of matter into any form that was needed or desired.
All at the touch of a button.
It was a shame the discovery was made by a mind that had more focus on greed than on humanity, but eventually, even she discovered that you can have too much of a good thing and the richer in gold she became, the more common it was, the less she was worth.
