Illuminated Manuscript of Two works on Precious Stones, Walters Art Museum Ms. W.589, fol. 33b

A codex containing two short works on precious stones ascribed to Jamāl al-Dīn al-Tifāshī and Aristotle respectively. The piece attributed to Aristotle, the beginning of which you see here, is likely to be a short paraphrase of or an extract from his Liber mineralium (or Lapidarius). This anonymous copy was penned in 989 AH / 1581 CE. See this manuscript page by page at the Walters Art Museum website:
