Gem Quiz

Here’s the Answer to October’s Gem Quiz

And congratulations to our winner!





You have an edge in the Gem Quiz when the stone in question is found in your backyard. That was the case for our October winner, Emily Core of Perry’s Diamonds & Estate Jewelry in Charlotte, NC, who correctly identified Hiddenite, noting that she “went to the mine on a 5th grade field trip!” Well done, Emily, and all our Honorable Mentions who also answered correctly – and who disproportionately seemed to come from the Tar Heel State.
