a red transparent variety of zircon used as a gemstone
A translucent, reddish type of zircon used as a gemstone.
Origin: [F. jacinthe, L. hyacinthus. See Hyacinth.]
Jacinth is a red transparent variety of zircon used as a gemstone. Jacinth is also a flower of a reddish blue or deep purple, and hence a precious stone of that colour. It has been supposed to designate the same stone as the ligure mentioned in Exodus 28:19 as the first stone of the third row in the high priest's breast-plate, the Hoshen. or choshen. In Revelation 9:17 the word is simply descriptive of colour.
