    In the Torah I only see mention of jewels/stones for these 12 tribes

    RubyReuven

    TopazShimon

    EmeraldLevi

    TurquoiseYehuda

    Lapis LazuliYissachar

    QuartzZevulun

    JacinthDan

    AgateNaphtali

    AmethystGad

    ChrysoliteAsher

    OnyxYosef

    If there are other tribes besides these and jewels/stones that correspond perhaps a rabbi would know or a teacher of Talmud.. Either that or the tribe of Cohen is part of or descends from one of these tribes and would have the same jewel/stone.
