in water; it is quenched in oil, Anyone wearing it who suffers from a swelling between the skin and the flesh (ie dropsy), will benefit, if it is poured in. Ground and mixed with water, it fixes loose teeth in place. By means of inhalation in hot baths it restores menstrual flow. The odour given out by jet when it burns will, in inhaled, get rid of epilepsy, and it puts snakes and demons to flight. It helps those who have an upset stomach; it is good for ringing in the ears; and it offers protection against spells; it is said to be a test for virginity. A woman who suffers from the flux, if it is of the womb, will be healed by water in which jet has been soaked for three days.
Lodestone is found in the land of the cave-dwellers and in India. It has a metallic colour and attracts iron. Its virtue is that if a man wants to know if his wife is chaste or not, he should place the stone under her head when she is asleep; if she is chaste, she will embrace him warmly; otherwise, she will fall from the bed as if struck by a hand; this happens because of the odour of the stone. If a thief should enter a house to rob it, and should place in different parts of the house a live coal and on top of it powdered lodestone, so that it gives off smoke to the four corners of the house, it will seem to those who are in the house that the house is collapsing; as a result, they will flee and the thief can rob the place. Lodestone produces harmony between man and woman; it bestows grace, eloquence, skill in argument. If it is given in the form of a drink, it purges dropsy. Its powder, put on a fire, quenches it.
Coral grows like a tree in the sea, at which time it is green; afterwards, however, it hardens and takes on a reddish colour. It resembles the branch of a tree. Its virtue is that it drives away lightning and storms, wherever it is; and if it is scattered around a vineyard or olive-grove, or on a field or on seeded ground, it protects it from hail and storms and it increases its yield. It banishes apparitions and brings a good outcome to legal business.
Almandine comes from the part of Asia called Alablanda. It resembles sard and is not easily distinguished from it.
Carnelian has a pale colour. Its virtue is this: it quenches the anger of people in dispute, and it staunches blood flowing from any part of the body, especially menstrual flow.
The carbuncle is found in Libya where cave-dwellers live; it sends out rays like a live coal, by night but not by day.
Ligurium comes from the urine of the lynx. You can see through the middle of the stone as through glass. The beast hides its urine in the sand lest it should be found. The virtue of ligurium is that it takes away stomach-ache and staunches
