Of Zingutte. cap. 194.

ZInguttes is a stone with glassie colour, if it be borne about ye necke, it helpeth against Victipolā. And stancheth bloud, and putteth off rauing and phrensie. And if it be held to a trée that burneth, it quen∣cheth the flame therof as Dioscor. saith.

(*There are many mo stones, whose hidden vertues are vnknowne for want of experiēce, which grow in fishes, beasts, birds, & men, as the stone in the Crabs head, the stone that groweth in ye Snaile, and the stone called Bulgoldo••, sorth of a beast in Indes, and there are good a∣gainst all posons, the stone that growes in the maw of an Oxe; or in the gall, the stone that is dred in the kindness of a man, and all these serue to great and se∣cret vses.)
