الكيمياء القديمة


Explanation:
Pronounced ALKEEMYA' ALQADEEMA.

The term literally means "ancient chemistry." This is to distinguish it from the modern discipline of chemistry.

Al-Mawrid Dictionary also suggests AL-KHEEMYA' (KH sounds like German CH).

علم الكيمياء القديـمة


Explanation:
And it is pronounced as: Ilm Alkeemya’a Alkadiemah. When we say Alchemy far away from the context we would mean the science of Alchemy or we will be referring to Alchemy as a Science.
