Super Challenging Puzzle!
*Correction: 15 Across should read spessartite

Prizes:
1st Place: 1 Only
Jewels by JAR, (Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Image
Called “the Fabergé of our time” by Diane von Furstenberg, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR, is one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the past thirty years. JAR is known for his use of precious and semi-precious stones resplendent with myriad shades of vibrant color and set in organic shapes: one brooch, for instance, features lifelike petals in subtly differentiated hues, made from a thousand pavé sapphires and amethysts. The New York Times has described his jewelry as “belligerent, stubborn, audacious, funny, contradictory,” while JAR himself has characterized his work as “somewhere between geometry and a bouquet of flowers.” This book, featuring nearly 40 pieces from throughout JAR’s career, provides a concise, accessible, elegantly designed retrospective of the best of his jewelry creations, and is the only book of its kind on his work available in English.

2nd Place:7 Calendars Available!
Minerals 2014 Calendar
Image
The rough and cut groups in this calendar depict a range of minerals from favorites such as diamond and opal to rarities such as rossmanite and väyrynenite. The photographers have paired exceptional gemstones with equally fine specimens, most of which can hardly be called “rough.” In truth, high-quality, euhedral, natural crystals are generally too valuable on the collector market to be cut; faceters instead typically find gemstones hidden inside partial or broken crystals. The “Rough and Cut” on these pages pair Nature’s jewels with those made by man and showcase the brilliance of each.

The calendar is published by Lithographie, LLC in cooperation with The Mineralogical Society of America. .
