A precious stone (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

emerald

'a precious stone' is the definition.
(I know that emerald is a type of precious stone)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for emerald that I've seen before include "Gem; type of moth" , "Mere lad (anag.)" , "...re medal? (Anag)" , "Green variety of beryl" , "Gem associated with Ireland" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
