Easton's Bible Dictionary
properly a flower of a reddish blue or deep purple (hyacinth), and hence a precious stone of that colour ( Revelation 21:20 ). It has been supposed to designate the same stone as the ligure (Hebrew. leshem) mentioned in Exodus 28:19 as the first stone of the third row in the high priest's breast-plate. In Revelation 9:17 the word is simply descriptive of colour.



Hitchcock's Dictionary of Bible Names
(no entry)



Smith's Bible Dictionary
A precious stone, forming one of the foundations of the walls of the new Jerusalem. ( Revelation 21:20 ) Called hyacinth in the Revised Version. This is simply a different English rendering of the same Greek original. It is probably identical with the lighure of ( Exodus 28:19 ) the Jacinth or hyacinth, a red variety of zircon, which is found in square prisms of a white, gray, red, reddish-brown, yellow or pale-green color. The expression in ( Revelation 9:17 ) "of jacinth," is descriptive simply of a dark-purple color.
