It has been awhile since we had a prize winning contest.
There are 18 rows horizontally and vertically.

In order to let me know you have found the words, PM me with the coordinates for the first letter of every hidden gem.
H for horizontal and V for vertical.

Example (You get a free word here!):
Agate: H 16; V 10

The contest will run for one week, until Oct 20, 11:59pm PST.
Then, one winning entry will be randomly chosen to win:

A deck of Rock and Mineral Playing Cards!

Tip: It may be easiest to print the acrostic and number the rows. =D> =D> Good luck to all. =D> =D>

Thanks everyone who entered our contest!
Everyone who entered was 100% accurate in their choices,
but sadly only one prize can be awarded.


The names of all entrants were placed in one of my oversized handbags and my son Eric pulled out the winner.
And the winner is:

Thanks, Gentlemen :) . Anyone who didn't try this really missed out on a fun and challenging puzzle. I know I'm looking forward to the next one :D .
