De Margaritis, & earum generatione.

CAP. XXI

                                        NE autem margaritarum delicata materia post: descriptionem
                                        piscium omissa, intacta relinquatur, in primis satendum
Amnes gemmiferi in Septentrione.                                         est, in Aquilonaribus terris quosdam esse amnes gemmiferos:
                                        quoniam hi conchas producunt, e quarum testis
Margaritæ palelidæ.                                         albicantes margaritæ, licet pallidæ propter aërem gelidum,
                                        dum, extrahuntur. Aër enim iste rori admixtus, circa medium
                                        mensis Augusti in concham descendit, causamque
                                        præstat, vt quantocyus margaritæ in ea contentæ maturesscant.
                                        Hæ autem ita extractæ, in ornatu ac pretio apud
Septentrionales habentur, atque vbi debito ordine collocatæ fuerint, pulchritudinem
Mangones gemmas illustrant. micantem obtinent: quæ illustrarione mangonum augetur. Et hi quoque splendidiores
Orientis margaritas, seu vniones maximo numero, præsertim in vsum, vel
Mulierum ornatus specialis. potius abusum illustrium fœminarum, immo communis sortis mulierum, ad oras
Aquilonarium apportant: quæ talibus tanquam rarioribus gaudent ornamentis,
atque iis in coronis, brachialibus, humeralibus, ac capitum denique tegumentis
vtuntur. Nulla tamen mulier ibidem quantuncunque illustris, visa est vnquam
Gemmæ vbi in auribus non habentur. margaritas, vniones, aut gemmas propter grave opprobrium evitandum, auribus
apposuisse, quasi non vnicuique membro suum decorem & venustatem, absque aliunde
a vermibus vilissimis mutuato splendore artifex ipsa natura attribuisset.
Olim hpnestissimæ mulieres, Reginæ præsertim, & Ducissæ, gemmas margaritasque,
Reginæ sacra vestimenta laborant. vt superius lib. XIIII. cap. VIII. dictum est, maximo pretio
emotas, propriis manibus laborando, ad vsum & ornatum sacrorum vestimentorum
