De Capello, (from cobra, the head, or covering; Spanish). A venomous serpent, which is also called serpens Indicus coronatus, vipera Indica vittata, vipera pileata. The Rattle snake. Crotatus hor-ridus Lin. Syst. Nat. (Gmelin) 1080. The part in use is a stone taken out of its head, whence its name of cobra; called pedro del cobra, and by mistake piedra di cobra: it is of an oval figure, plain on the outside, and gibbous on the other, of a brown colour, shining, with pores interspersed. It is said to be an antidote to the poison of venomous animals; but neither this quality nor the truth of its being a natural production is ascertained; for the Pierres de Cobras were discovered by Fontana to be artificial productions, and to consist only of calcined hartshorn.
