The Tribe of Manasseh

Entering into Manasseh

The gemstone associated with the tribes of Manasseh & Ephraim is black onyx. Black doesn’t occur in nature very frequently – so the color is instead represented by the deep reds and deep purples you find here. Cheshvan is when the great flood began and ended! In addition to the water features to represent the flood, when it rains for an extended period of time, Manasseh actually floods!
