Chapter Summary

This supplement consists of a comparison between the text of some stones as it features in Berakhyah's stonebook and that of the anonymous translator of the stonebook by Marbode of Rennes. Irone stone hails from the Red Sea. Its colour is like that of the crystal. Optallies stone has the power to heal the eye with the water in which it has been washed. Thieves wear it while they search houses, for it affords them light in the dark and they see all that is in the house.

Keywords: Berakhyah's stonebook; Irone stone; Optallies stone
