Hi All,

A new quiz! Be the first to guess the variety of all seven gems and win a free download of Gemology Tools Professional (a $59.95 value). If you already own a copy of GT Pro please don't participate (what's the point?).

New rules: I wasn't really happy with the way I ran the last quiz because someone could come in late, use others hard work and win with one correct guess. That did not happen last time (Jung Kee was there from the beginning) but it could have. Therefore, as you enter your guesses I will only tell you how many you have correct. Then others can look at your guesses, see how many you have right and go from there. These are pretty easy with the possible exception of two or maybe three. To view the gems go to:

Good luck!!

Carrie, you are the leader with 4 correct guesses.

I forgot to point out that you may make as many guesses as you want.
