Not really relevant to the cards, but Anhalonium Lewenii is Peyote, or Mescaline, a member of the cactus family. Different to magic mushroom which is a little mushroom. Perhaps Crowley took the name out of context, or made an assumption about where it came from. Anhalonium is made from Mescal Buttons, but not mushroom buttons

A little more relevant this is a paragraph describing the experience of Anhalonium, which is applicable to the discussion on vitriol.

This experience implies immortality - what dies is the body; as the Self is continuous with the whole of existence, it cannot be mortal... Anhalonium people speak in terms of universe, space, etc. They have the most fantastic experiences which are often spiritual, and have no fear of losing their ego, identity or losing a dear person.
