The Hoshen was a breastplate worn by the Israelite High Priest who served in the Beit HaMikdash (the Holy Temple) in Israel. Set upon it were twelve unique stones corresponding to the tribes descended from Jacob’s twelve sons, as it is written in the Book of Exodus: "And you shall set it with four rows of mounted stones … a ruby, an emerald, and a topaz … a carbuncle, a sapphire, and a quartz crystal ... a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst … a chrysolite, an onyx, and an opal. … The stones shall contain the names of the twelve children of Israel, one for each of the twelve stones ... to represent the twelve tribes."" (Ex. 28: 17-21)
