Clue 10 is confusing.
You're meant to name the gem that displays the nail head inclusions, the heads of which actually look like the breadcrumbs.

9 down is not "badtrip" unless you get involved in some crazy sh*t while in Colombia attempting to buy one of these gems.

wow, this crossword is so tough. i can do the cross part ok, but it's the words!

now, 8 across - it has got to be either mexifire or sexifire...but,um, the latter sounds a bit like something that arrives in a plain brown wrapper...not that one knows anything about that sort of thing, of course...so, mexifire it must be. hold on, it could be lexifire or lexifier or ...damn,damn,damn.

as for elvis prasiolite's favourite gem... i keep getting red spider ...which must be something like this ... funny, i wouldn't have thought elvis was the type. you just never know.

hints gratefully accepted :?
