Emerald
        Heb. nophek (Ex. 28:18; 39:11); i.e., the "glowing stone",
        probably the carbuncle, a precious stone in the breastplate of
        the high priest. It is mentioned (Rev. 21:19) as one of the
        foundations of the New Jerusalem. The name given to this stone
        in the New Testament Greek is smaragdos, which means "live
        coal."
