Yay, funny quiz! I'm a newbie so I'll guess haphazardly, but here we go:

1. Beryl
2. Calcite
3. Demantoid
4. Tourmaline
5. Spessartite
6. Kornerupine
7. Quartz

This is a lot of fun Bill!

New guess:

1. Aquamarine
2. Calcite
3. Demantoid
4. Tanzanite
5. Spessartite
6. Sphene
7. Never seen inclusions the like of these, but I'll guess at sinhalite
