People's Dictionary of the Bible
Jacinth or Hyacinth, "amber" margin R. V. Exodus 28:19. Probably the same as the ligure, a gem of a yellowish-red or a dark purple color, Revelation 9:17; called "sapphire" in margin of R. V. Revelation 21:20. In the former passage there is reference merely to its color.
