    Excerpt from Precious Stones: For Curative Wear, and Other Remedial Uses; Likewise the Nobler Metals

    The Topaz, reduced to powder, was mixed with rosewater, and taken to prevent bleeding whilst for staying bleeding at the nose the stone itself was applied within, or to the side of that organ. The Amethyst was the stone of temperance and sobriety, being said to restrain the wearer from strong drinks, and from indulging in too much sleep. It was further behaved to quicken the wits, and to drive vapours from the head.

    Pearls were administered in cases of consumption, and were commended, when powdered, in ten grain doses, for giving strength to the heart. They were further esteemed for fortifying the nerves, curing weak eyes, preserving the body sound from the decay of old age, and even resisting the plague, when taken in doses of six grains, in water sweetened with manna. Amber was given to cure coughs; while Red Coral was an excellent purifier of the blood, correcting derangements of the liver.

    Jasper was adopted by the early physicians as an astringent, being curative of epilepsy, and the stone.
