2 across is incorrect.
Sardonyx would be in a million pieces, heated to 1600 and then dropped in water. [-X

Well ... I stand corrected #-o

Actually 5 across was the "underwater" stone ... with that funny spelling.

I will spend my free time till Easter heating and throwing sardonyxes (or sardonices?) in the water ...

some funky languages there :D

Everyone should have received their prizes. They were all sent out quite a time ago.

Thanks to all of you for the support you have given our forum. :D
