شَثٌّ

شَثٌّ A species of tree, (Aṣ, IDrd, ISd, Mṣb,) of those that grow upon the mountains, (Aṣ,) or a certain plant, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) of sweet odour, (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ,) but bitter to the taste, (Ṣ, Mṣb,) with which one tans, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) growing in the mountains of El-Ghowr (ADk, Mṣb) and Tihámeh and Nejd; (ADk;) a kind of tree like the dwarf-apple-tree, (AḤn, Mgh,) in size, (AḤn,) the leaves of which are like those of the خِلَاف [q. v.], (AḤn, Mgh,) and are used for tanning therewith, (Mgh,) without thorns, and having a small rose-coloured [fruit of the kind called] بَرَمَة, in which are three or four black grains, resembling the شِينِيز [q. v.], which, when scattered, are eaten by the pigeons: n. un. with ة. (AḤn:) the word occurs in a trad. as the name of a tan: Az says that it is a mistake for شَبّ, though he knew not whether the شَثّ were used for tanning, or not: (TA:) [Mṭr, however, says that] شِبّ is a mistake in this case, for it is a species of زَاج, and is a dye, not a tan: (Mgh:) accord. to some, (TA,) the شَثّ is the wild nut (جَوْزُ البَرِّ). (Ḳ [in which this last is mentioned as a distinct signification] and TA.) [See also شَبٌّ.]
