Islamic physicians not only contributed to the recording of new medicinal substances and compound remedies,but also,in collaboration with other artisans,developed new equipment for the pharmacy. `Albarello'is the name given to drug jars having a waisted form with slightly concave sides which became popular in Europe from the 15th century onward.The design employed by the pharmaceutical potters of Europe was taken directly from the medieval Islamic world, for the earliest examples preserved today were made in Syria near the end of the 12th century.The contracted waist of these jars allowed them to be easily removed from a row when set side by side on a shelf.They were used for storage of a variety of herbs,roots, seeds, spices and other medicinal substances.
