Quintessa

Quintessa seems to be a variant form of Quintessence, originating from Latin quintus (five, fifth) and essentia (being, essence) meaning “fifth essence” or “fifth being”. In medieval philosophy, quintessence was used to refer to the fifth element after air, water, earth, and fire, also known as aether in Greek. It’s also used as a word to refer to something that is the perfect embodiment of something.
