Post subject:  WINNER ANNOUNCED!!! Kunzite Krossword Kwiz

This quiz is about Spodumene so appropriately the prize is a Kunzite crystal. This is no ordinary junky crystal but a gorgeous terminated specimen that is from the patroke mine in Afghanistan, is untreated and weighs 355cts!

The contest will run for 1 week. Do not post your answers here. Send them to me via PM. At 11pm EST next Sunday I will post the answers and the winner. The winner will be determined by taking all of the correctly answered puzzles and randomly drawing a name. Please be sure of your answers before you send it in because there is only 1 entry allowed per person.

Many thanks to Tim Spauwen for creating the puzzle for me. :)

I'm going to alter the rules slightly. Instead of one chance, I'll give you two. I'll pm you telling you what number(s) you have wrong and you may submit once more.

Most of this was fun, but good God #8 and #1 were hard for me...and I'm not even sure if they're right :(

But since doing these crosswords and quizzes is fun and teaches me about gems I normally wouldn't know about, it's all good! There's nothing like the prospect of a prize to make me learn faster :)

Jason, I just sent you a PM. Are you still giving us two tries, and telling us which ones we got wrong?

Yup. You still get two chances and I'll tell you which ones you miss.

We had 12 entries. 9 of which got all the answers correct within 2 tries. I printed all the names who got them correct and made ballots to draw from. In a blind draw I selected one winner.

And the winner of the Kunzite crystal is:




SKYCRITTER!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Please contact me via pm with your mailing information and I will send the crystal out to you.

Very good work all of you!

As you know I struggled with the rather easy 16. across but do you mind providing your reference for 1. across?
I am totally amazed that there were not far more entries given the fine prize.

Thanks Mehoose, I saw that but thought it was greek (or something). I used Lithian Emerald and it fit.
Congratulations Skycritter!
