Of Emachite. chap. 40.
EMachites is a red stone and reddie and rustie, & is sonne in Affrica and Iuda & in Arabia. And hath that name, for if it be broken with bloud, it tourveth anone into the colour of bloud, as Isido. saith. And is god against fluxe of the bladder, and for sore eien, and against venim and against the biting of an Adder, and stan∣cheth, the fluxe of the womb▪ & restraineth all bléeding, & namelye the bloud of wo∣men: & of the gums, as Dioscorid. saith. And in Plat. it is sayd, that it is of cold & drie complection, & hath vertue to stanch bloud. And hath that name Emachites, of Emach, that is bloud, and Chites, that is stint. And so it helpeth Emopto∣ces, men that spue and cast bloud, and is speciall remedie for the bloudie flixe.
