You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
This verse is specifically speaking about Lucifer who became Satan, and it is not referring to the king of Tyre as misunderstood by some Christians. Ezekiel Chapter 28 begins by describing the king of Tyre, who was inspired by and used by Satan in much the same way as Peter was when Jesus said to him, ''¿/Get thee behind me, Satani'd/ (Matthew 16:23). The scripture Ezekiel 28:13-19 takes us on from speaking about the king of Tyre to speaking about Satan himself, as these verses can only fit the description of a fallen angelic being, and not a man.
Please note that Lucifer was placed in Eden, the Garden of God, and he had every precious stone as his covering. Lucifer was a leading angel who was placed in God's Garden of Eden on the beautifully created earth, which God created in the beginning with the rest of the universe.
The Bible actually speaks of three gardens of Eden in three different Ages. There was the first Garden of Eden in the Pre-Adamic Age, as the verse above confirms. There was a second Garden of Eden in the Adamic-Age (Genesis 2:15) and there will be a third Garden of Eden in the coming Millennial Age of Jesus Christ. (Ezekiel 36:35)
A garden has both plant and animal life, thus God created the Pre-Adamic world with both plants and animals. The enormous deposits and reservoirs, under the earth's surface, of fossil fuels coal, oil and gas, show that the Pre-Adamic earth was absolutely teeming with both plant and animal life.
