Alchemy spells

The term 'Alchemy Spell' isn't something that's defined in Runescape, and the grouping of spells in this article doesn't make sense, nor does it add value to a reader. Given that it's not defined in game, and there is no unique info in this article that's not already on each of the linked pages, I'm proposing deletion. Any specific information thats present here and not elsewhere should be moved to Skilling spells

Currently, the approach towards this grouping looks to be 'I'll know it when I see it', without a systemic evaluation or definition for an 'alchemy' spell. I don't believe its defined in game anywhere.

Some examples of issues when trying to classify it


Anything that uses a nature rune doesn't fit, since spells like Bind or Entangle are clearly not alchemy.

Anything that is a Skilling spell and uses a nature rune doesnt fit, since you've got spells like Prism of Dowsing, and Remote Farm, which I would argue aren't anything to do with alchemy.

Anything that is a Skilling spell, uses a nature rune, and is in the Standard spellbook (which I think is a flawed defintion), still wouldnt work, since you have spells like Enchant Crossbow Bolt (Emerald).

Superglass Make is classified as a alchemy spell, since it transforms sand into glass but uses no nature runes.

Hunter Kit (spell) is classified as an alchemy spell, but isn't transforming one thing into another.

Crystallise transforms a resource into crystal, but isn't considered alchemy
