Translation:

Lithos ematides is Greek for Latin lapis sanguineus {"blood-like stone"}, because Greek ema is in Latin sanguis {"blood"}, and it is given that name either because rubbing it over a whet stone brings out a blood-red colour or because it is a good remedy for {staunching} any blood-flow.
