For something that requires a 20th level feat just to make, what you get out of the Philosopher Stone is kind of meh. It's not bad, just not all that exciting I think.
I mean, you get either a bunch of gold or silver or a elixir of rejuvenation once a month. Nothing to sneeze at to be sure but still a bit bland.
So my thoughts are that these two uses are just the commonly known uses of a Philosophers Stone. That there are many other things that can be done with one should you discover how.
And these other uses just aren't known to the world yet. After all, just how many 20th level Alchemists are there? I can only think of one at the moment, Artorkus Kirran. In fact I think that's the secret of the sun orchid elixir. It's a mixture of the stones quicksilver and sun orchid essence.
So, let's think of what other level appropriate substances the stones quicksilver
can be combined with and what effects it might have.
I'll start :
1. Treating common crystals turns them into diamonds or other precious stones, similar to turning lead into gold.
2. Combining it with sufficient rarefied clays creates a clay golem with greater than normal intelligence.
