שבו , Exodus 28:19 ; Exodus 39:12 . In the Septuagint αχατης , and Vulgate, achates. A precious stone, semi-pellucid. Its variegations are sometimes most beautifully disposed, representing plants, trees, rivers, clouds, &c. Its Hebrew name is, perhaps, derived from the country whence the Jews imported it; for the merchants of Sheba brought to the market of Tyre all kinds of precious stones, Ezekiel 27:22 . The agate was the second stone in the third row of the pectoral of the high priest, Exodus 28:19 ; Exodus 39:12 .
