If you don't win the contest my advice is to buy the program. I find it very useful.

Makes me wonder what I would do with it as I'm on Linux.
Any plans on making a *nix version?

I am a Mac user myself. I am running GTP on a Virtual PC program. It is working fine. If Bill ever made a Mac version in the future though, I would love that too!

Wine not

I am both a w(h)iner and a cross-over/dresser .. maybe I should request for a download just "to do some test runs". Some things are just impossible to emulate with wine and cross-over.

Hey Bill (and Barb),

Assuming that the colors on my screen are the same as those on yours -- and that's a stretch, as we all know -- these are the best I can come up with, without the gems in front of me. I'd love to be able to offer just one answer per image, but, after more than 30 years of looking at stones, I know enough to admit that "if it ain't in my hands, it ain't 100% identifiable". As such, these are the names that come to mind with each of the images you've provided. Dare I ask how I did?

It's probably good practise for the next one coming up soon. :D

Ah, the next one coming up. The first two GT Pro quizzes were simply guessing games. Sort of a process of elimination as you watched your competitors answers get tallied. The next one (Sunday, Nov. 26, 10AM Eastern Standard Time U.S.A.) will have gemological clues. There is a small hitch (well, maybe two): some of the gems aren't very common. Also, some of you may not consider them gems because most don't reach 7 in hardness. Still, if you're a gemologist your job is often to identify these gems (or whatever you want to call them). If you have enough information at hand you can do it. My goal is to see how long it takes a group of gemophiles to ID this group of 9 or 10 gems without GT Pro. Should be fun.

Note: if you already have a copy of GT Pro, please refrain from participating.
