    Barnes' Notes on Exodus 28:18

    An emerald - Rather the garnet, which when cut with a convex face is termed the carbuncle.

    A sapphire - Not the stone now called the sapphire; the lapis-lazuli is most probably meant.

    A diamond - There is no trace of evidence that the ancients ever acquired the skill to engrave on the diamond, or even that they were acquainted with the stone. The "diamond" here may possibly be some variety of chalcedony, or (perhaps) rock crystal.
