Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"Essentia can be stored in Warded Jars.

Warded jars can be placed in world and is able to store essentia virtually indefinitely. The enchantment placed on the jars also makes adding or extracting essentia a breeze.

Jars can be filled from an alembic by clicking with the jar directly on the alembic. They can also be filled and emptied using phials.

What is more they make an excellent storage medium for jams and preserves.

Shift clicking on jars and alembics with an empty hand will empty them.

As long as a jar contains some essentia, you can attach a Jar Label to it.

This label will 'lock' the jar to that type of essentia and it will not be able to accept any other kind of essentia.

You can remove a label by shift clicking with an empty hand on the side of the jar containing the label. Take care not to shift click on any other side as it will empty the jar as normal.

You can place a label in a crafting bench with a phial of essentia to assign an aspect to it and when placed on an empty jar it will automatically lock the jar to that aspect. The essentia used in the recipe is not consumed.

Placing it on a filled jar will change the label to the jar's essentia type.

A label can be made blank again by simply placing it by itself in a crafting grid."
