Jacinth: noun - a precious stone; the colour of jacinth, blue or, sometimes reddish orange; in heraldry the colour tenné, reddish orange, in blazoning by precious stones; a dyed fabric, blue or violet in colour; hyacinth. Adjective - of the colour of jacinth.

‘April was prone to wear clothes that would be outlandish on many, but her willowy figure allowed her to get away with matching the jacinth, decorating her ring, with the hyacinth coloured flowing drapery that passed for a dress.’
