  Quintessence \Quin*tes"sence\, v. t.
     To distil or extract as a quintessence; to reduce to a
     quintessence. [R.] --Stirling. "Truth quintessenced and

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Quintessence \Quin*tes"sence\, n. [F., fr. L. quinta essentia
     fifth essence. See {Quint}, and {Essence}.]
     1. The fifth or last and highest essence or power in a

     Note: The ancient Greeks recognized four elements, fire, air,
           water, and earth. The Pythagoreans added a fifth and
           called it nether, the fifth essence, which they said
           flew upward at creation and out of it the stars were
           made. The alchemists sometimes considered alcohol, or
           the ferment oils, as the fifth essence.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. Hence: An extract from anything, containing its rarest
        virtue, or most subtle and essential constituent in a
        small quantity; pure or concentrated essence.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Let there be light, said God; and forthwith light
              Ethereal, first of things, quintessence pure,
              Sprung from the deep.                 --Milton.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. The most characteristic form or most perfect example of
        some type of object.
