Chapter Summary

This section of the book Berakhyah Ben Natronai ha-Nakdan, Sefer Koʾaḥha-Avanim (On the Virtue of the Stones) contains Hebrew text along with English translation. It describes 72 stones which are arranged in alphabetical order as is common for lapidaries, with the exception of stones 68 to 70. The virtues of the stones are of a medical-scientific character and/or of a magical-supernatural one; one do not find any reference to allegorical or astrological connotations of the stones. These virtues can be activated in essentially two different ways, either by external application of the stone to the body just like an amulet, or by internal application in case the stone is friable.
