[p. 244] Docet Theophrastus rationem resoluendi[c1] Crystallum in oleum limpidissimum, ex quo arena calculus & lapis liquescit, aut in tenuissimum alcool redigitur, & tandem expellitur. Verùm cum eam artem & præterea complures præstantissimas Sanctissimo pio Medici Pontifici maximo aliquando offerre, noluimus hac tempestate his de Tartaro libris adiungere. Benedictus Altissimus qui nobis Theophrastum præceptorem statuit, ex eo enim oritur illa ipsa uera medicina in usum hominum.

Theophrastus taught a method for dissolving crystals into the clearest oil, from which sand, pebbles, and stones dissolve or are reduced to the finest alcohol and finally expelled. However, since we did not want to add this technique to our books on Tartar during this time, which we consider to be excellent and offer them someday to the most Holy and Pious Medici Pontiff. Blessed be the Most High who appointed Theophrastus as our teacher, for from him arises that true medicine for the use of mankind.
