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 Gemology Tools Professional please refrain from participating. It would be viewed as cheating and we all know gemologists don't cheat.
