A semiprecious stone more nearly orange in color than the hyacinth. Some English translations give jacinth as a gem in the high priest's breastplate (Exodus 28:19 , NAS, NIV, NRSV), the color of one of the riders' breastplates (Revelation 9:17 KJV), and the eleventh foundation stone of the new Jerusalem ( Revelation 21:20 , KJV, NAS, NIV, NRSV). See Hyacinth ; Minerals and Metals in the Bible.
