And the Answer to May’s Gem Quiz Was …

UNTIL THE MAY Gem Quiz, about the only Swahili phrase we knew at INSTORE was “hakuna matata” (thanks to numerous viewings of The Lion King). To that we’ve now added “Malaia” or “Malaya”, although given it’s on the derogatory side, it’s probably not going to be that useful. But let’s put that aside and celebrate the beautiful reddish/orange garnet that carries that name — and also the triumph of Trish Carruth from Your Personal Jeweler in Royal Oak, MI, who correctly surmised the identity of our May mystery stone. Well done, Trish, who scores this month’s Gem Quiz t-shirt. Well done also to all our Honorable Mentions, who submitted correct answers. Hakuna matata!!!
