 מּוּךְ noun [masculine] antimony, stibium (Late Hebrew = Biblical Hebrew; compare possibly Arabic open, separate; Syriac pulverize; but מּוּךְ perhaps foreign word); — black mineral powder, for increasing brilliance of eyes by darkening edges of lids; ׳וַתָּשֶׂם בֵּמּעֵינֶוהָ 2 Kings 9:30, ׳תִּקְרְעִי וגו Jeremiah 4:30; (on practice in Arabic see We GGN, 1893,443; in Egypt, Lane Mod.Egypt.ed. 5, i. 45f.); figurative Isaiah 54:11 of dark cement setting off precious stones (but We DLZ, Aug. 2,1890 Che Hpt and others read נֹפֶךְ q. v.); ׳אַבְנֵי פ 1 Chronicles 29:2 are perhaps stones of brilliant hue of antimony. — compare proper name קֶרֶן הַמּוּךְ, and כָּחַל.

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

פּוּךְ an unused root, which had, perhaps, the sense of moving to and fro, wavering, i.q. פּוּק. Hence may be derived the following word, which is of uncertain origin.

פּוּךְ i.q. Greek φῦκος, prop. sea-weed, (so called from its moving about, waving hither and thither), from which an alkaline pigment was prepared; hence used of the pigment itself; also the dye with which the Hebrew women tinged their eyelashes, prepared from stibium, or antimony (LXX. στιμμί, Vulg. stibinm), 2 Kings 9:30; Jeremiah 4:30 (comp. pr.n. קֶרֶן הַפּוּךְ). Isaiah 54:11, “I will lay thy stones with stibium”, i.e. I will use stibium as cement in building thy walls. It may be doubted what are אַבְנֵי־פוּךְ stones of pigment, 1 Chronicles 29:2, used in building the Temple. I should understand them to be the more valuable stones, such as a kind of marble, used for covering and as it were painting the walls.
