LIBER XII.         415

De quæstu, & vsu Succini.


CAP. IX.

                                        HVIVS autem succini non exiguus quæstus est primumQuæstus succini.
                                        Principi, in cujus littore ad plura millia vasorum quotannis
                                        colligitur, & mercatoribus in ipsa grossitie venundatur:
                                        qui politiori superinducta purgatione, in variis
                                        formis tum terrestri, tum marino itinere, sic splendide purgatum, Succinum exportatur.
                                        in longinquas deportant regiones, vt indurati liquoris
                                        splendorem admirantes, puicherrimam raritatem
                                        appretientur. Vbi enim nascitur, ob assiduitatem parum
                                        voluptatis allicit, vel vilescit: vbi alienigenis in maximaVoluptas nauseam habet.
aviditate servatur. Adeo nulla voluptas est, quæ non assiduitate sui fastidium mortalibus
panat, vbi raritate, & temperamento affectuum, ac vsuum, in maximo desiderio
postulatur. Ex hoc succino gentilium superstitiosa vanitate, ob mirum splendorem,
simulachra, immo & latæ mensæ fusorum singulari artificio fabricantur. Mensæ succini.
Ideo pretium eius per occasionem eventuum, ac vtentium variatur, & eo avidius,
quo in se contineat omnium. colorum diversitatem, atque formam, seu corpuscula animaliumDiversitas colorum.
prædictorum minutorum, origine distillationis incorporata, veluti nonnullæ
arbores, quæ asperitate aquarum lapidescunt, prout alibi relinquitur enarratum. Arbores lapidescunt.
Sunt igitur artificum hujus succini maximæ societates, quæ eo quæstu partim sub dominio
Regis Poloniæ in opulentissimo oppido Gedanensi, partim sub Duce PrussiæRex Poloniæ.
liberaliter vivunt, largumque tributum principibus, ac magistraribus eorundemDux Prussiæ.
pendunt: & forte opulentior fors eisdem artificibus proveniret, si fraginentorumQuæstus major quomodo fit.
succineorum fusoria onglutinatione minutias igneo fervore constare scirent. Et
licet hæc ars avide satis desideratur, ibidem tamen adhuc, vt apparet,
nondum adepta, & forsan vix vt fusilis, aut malleabilis
fiat, adipiscetur. Pompeia Neronis vxor succinei
coloris capillos incessanter nutriens, omnes
fœminas habuit in ea voluptate
sequaces.
