חַלָּמִישׁ m. quadrilit. flint, hard stone, Job 28:9; Psalms 114:8 more fully צוּר הַחַלָּמִישׁ Deuteronomy 8:15, 32:13. (In Arabic حَلْنَبوُسُ, not حَلْنبُوسُ pyrites. The primary idea appears to be that of smoothness, a signification found in many verbs beginning with חל, see חלב, חלה, חלק, compare glaber, gladius, Germ. glatt. A kindred word is Gr. χάλιξ, silex).
