¶Of Kamau. cap. 57.

KAmau is a stone, now white, now browne, now reddish, now diuided with diuers colours, and hath that name Kamau of Kamatis, that is to say, bur∣ning or kindling, for it is founde in pla∣ces of brimstone and of heate. And Di∣oscorides saith, the vertue therof healeth the Dropsie, and is grauen with diuers Images and shapes.
