Ligure, Heb. leshem. A precious stone mentioned in Exodus 28:19; Exodus 39:12, R. V. "Jacinth," as the first in the third row of the high priest's breastplate. Perhaps tourmaline, or more definitely the red variety known as rubellite, is the stone meant. Rubellite is a hard stone, and used as a gem, and is sometimes sold for red sapphire.
