De Gummi abietino, sive Resina, & origine Ambræ, seu Succini.


CAP. VIII.

Succinum & ambra.                                         QVIA maxima varietas in scriptoribus de origine, & natura
                                        ac qualitate succini, seu ambræ reperitur, præcipue
                                        Perotto referente, qui insigni diligentia concordare nisus est
                                        multorum opinionem singularem, vnde, & quomodo nascatur
Origo verior succini.                                         hic liquor gracilis, & mirandus: idcirco quid verisimilius
                                        est ex Aquilonarium sententia, hic veniet attendendum.
                                        Abietes, seu pineæ arbores, natura sua resinosæ, excelsa
Maturitas succini quando.                                         proceritate sive super littora maris, sive super rivos,
                                        vel alias sylvarum declivitates crescentes, succinum sudant,
maximæ dum maturis frugibus solis fervor ( vt infra præsenti
lib. cap. XX. latius dicetur ) torrentibus ipsis Iunio, Iulioque mensibus
incendiosior, Cancri atque Leonis tetigerit metas, tum istæ arbores æstu valido fissis
Ranæ. corticibus, succinum sui liquoris in subjectos latices, seu fluvios, indurandum
Mures. emittunt: sicque stillando, quodcunque objectum corpus sui tenacitate tanquam glutinum
Culices. involuit: quo fit, vt ranæ, mures, culices, araneæ, muscæ, aristæ, legumina,
& his similia, in resinoso hoc visco (vt infra lib. XVIII. cap. XII. patebit) rapta
Succinum in mare desertur. involvantur, ac indurentur, etiam si in arenam ceciderint continuatæ guttæ, quia imbre
supereffuso ad rivos, inde flumina, & tandem in mare deferuntur: vbi instar aliarum
Durities saxosa. arborum tantum certo tempore indurantur, vt saxosa duritie coctum, dira tempestate
Prutenicum littus. per mare Gothicum, seu Finnonicum, ac Livonicum evomatur in Prutenicum
littus, scilicet Meridionale, directe oppositum Septentrioni: & hoc omni
Edictum de succino. tempore, quo flatibus vndæ volvantur ad Prutenicam terram: in qua ob
Principis edictum, nulli nisi deputati, & jurati laboratores,
succinum hujusmodi colligere possunt.
