====Of Alabaster====
Alabaster, as saith ''Isidore'' in his .xvi. booke and fift Chapter, is a white kinde of stone died, and bespotted among with divers & sundrie colours. Hereof are made vessels to keepe and contine all Ointements uncorupt, wherein they be most purely and safely preserved. It groweth about ''[[Thebes|Thebis]]'' and ''[[Damascus|Damascum]]'', andespeciallye that which is whitest. But the best of this kinde is brought from ''[[India|Indie]]''. It being borne about one, say some, keepeth him in amitie and charitie with all men.
