Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

סֹחֶרֶת f. a kind of costly stone, used in making a tesselated pavement, Esther 1:6. It is either a kind of black marble, compare Syr. ܫܚܳܘܽܪܬܐܳ lapis niger tinctorius (ס and שׁ being interchanged), or as I should prefer taking it, marble marked with round spots, as if shields, shielded marble; see סֹחֵרָה. Tortoiseshell is what ס׳ has been supposed to be by Hartmann (Hebräerin, iii. p. 353), consisting as it were of shields (compare סֹחֵרָה); but it is scarcely probable that this was introduced in making a pavement amongst various kinds of marble.
