The breastplate was inlaid with 12 stones, one to represent each of the 12 tribes of Israel in the order of their birth. Jacinth was the 7th stone attributed to Ephraim.

Later in Revelations a passage describes the Jacinth as being one of the Foundation stones of the New Temple of Jerusalem in Heaven.

Care and Treatment:  Given its psychical vibrations, keep your gemstone in a dark velvet pouch. To wash, hold it under a cool running tap for several minutes.  It has a hardness score of just 7, which means that it can chip quite easily so care should be taken when handling.  Try to choose settings where the stone is protected.

Jacinth Around the World:  Jacinth is fairly common being igneous sedimentary rock and gems are often found in the gravel deposits of streams and on sandy beaches.  It is mined in Africa and Asia. A large reserve was found in Australia in 2004 which has a particular fine grade of the stone.  It is also found in Europe and in large amounts in Scandinavia especially Norway.

The Ideal Gift:  This is the perfect gift for a 19th wedding anniversary, or for a November birthday. A pendant made from Jacinth makes a potent amulet of protection for anyone involved in occultism. On the other end of the scale, perhaps you know a Christian who is struggling to be steadfast in their faith?  It makes a beautifully healing gift for troubled souls.

It would also make a discrete and thoughtful gift for anyone who has fallen victim to anorexia, stimulating their appetite, building their self esteem and heightening wisdom about their illness.
