(Strong's #2393 — Noun Feminine — iaspis — ee'-as-pis )

a Phoenician word (cp. Heb. yash'pheh, e.g., Exodus 28:20; 39:16 ), seems to have denoted a translucent stone of various colors, especially that of fire, Revelation 4:3; 21:11,18,19 . The sardius and the jasper, of similar color, were the first and last stones on the breastplate of the high priest, Exodus 28:17,20 .
