Droconites, otherwise dentrites draconius, or obsianus, is described
by Albertus Magnus as a shining
black stone of pyramidal figure. It is difficult to obtain, as it must be
taken from the head of a dragon, cut off while the beast is still panting.
It subdues all kinds of poison, and gives its possessor invincible courage.
The kings of the East esteemed it as a great treasure. A.G.H.
