Of Alabandina. chap. 14.
ALabandina is a precious stone, and hath that name of a region of Asia, the which is called Alabandina: The co∣lour thereof is like to the stone Calcido∣nius: but it is more tare, as Isi. saith, cap. de Cristallis. And Dioscorides sayth, that Alabandina is a precious stone cléere & some deale red, as Cardius. The vertue thereof exciteth and increaseth bloud.
(*Alabandina, a red stone, mixt with bliew, prouoking bloud. D. Cooper.)
