It's a pretty common word as a colour name. My problem was that I tried both "linea" and "anile" for word 3, and neither produced anything. Not sure how I managed to miss "alien"!

it is a pretty common color name. i didn't get the alien one either. i'm surprised mostly because my friends call me the walking talking spelling dictionary.

I loved this one, it was very fun. For some reason, everytime I do one of these there's always one I JUST CAN'T GET. Oh well. Better luck next time.

Liked it---even though I had no idea about #3 and aquamarine escaped me it made you think and that is always good.

I like this series of teasers... fun, not too tough and not too easy. Thanks!


(And isn't Aquamarine so pretty)

I got all the individual words ...and all the correct letters from them ...but I forgot to read the title, GEMSTONE, and didn't figure out how to put the letters together. Gotta' remember to read the titles from now on!

Coulen't for the life of me get the first one, so needless to say I was lost. Good,--- no, Great teaser Brainster.

Nicely done, Brain! Reasonably easy, for a morning's workout. Yet, not so tough, as to get too boring. Keep up marveloous work.

I got the first,second, and fourth words right away and from that was able to guess that the answer was aquamarine. But I just couldn't figure out clue numbe three!

Lots of fun!

I like word jumbles, Brainster, and you usually add a word that escapes me at first (alien) . I got the rest and got the answer, then filled in alien! Looking forward to #3.

Challenging, but doable. I like them when they are like that. Thanks

Good one as usual, Brainster. I really enjoy these gem teasers. I heard a tale of a goddess who shed Aquamarine tears. The gems that landed in seas, colored them. Those tears that fell on land became gems. She cried at the loss of a lover.

I too failed to get "alien." Once I peeked at that I got aquamarine quickly. This was fun!

I like teasers that meke me think. I got 1,2, and 4 right away;but, I do admit that it took me a little longer to get 3. Thanks for the mind work.

THIS WAS WELL DONE, EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT LIKE JUMBLES IN THE LEAST. GOOD JOB.

Really good, except for eilan, just because it could have been alien or aline which changes the 5th letter. You can work it out, though, when you realize the e in aline doesn't work. It's really fun other than that though!

Nice and yet simple and interesting anagrams for a crossword lover like me! I love this type of teasers. Got this one.

One of my favorite gems. I got it! Nice job Brainster. More coming our way I hope?

I like the gemstone series

I got aquamarine as soon as I got queue (because what other gemstone has a q in it? ) but then, just to be sure, I worked out the rest of the jumbles. To get alien, I took the three letters I hadn't yet used from aquamarine (A, I, and N) and put blanks between them ... then the alien jumped out at me! aaahhhh!!

i didn't get it but when i saw the letters collected i imediately thought aquamarine
the sad part is that i didn't know it was a gemstone and i only know the word because of the movie aquamarine

hehe. Once I re-read the directions and realized I needed to unscramble the words first the letters I pulled made much more sense! I got aquamarine before I wrote down the last A as a letter to use. Great puzzle!

I never noticed that it was a gem teaser, so all those letters that I got wouldn't make a word for me. But it was fun trying. Thanks for a good tough one.

Took me a minute but I got it! Fun! Thanks for posting!

I like this! Aquamarine is my daughter's birthstone, so as soon as I had the q and u, I knew. Alien was the last one I got, but solved the others, got aquamarine and figured alien out by what was missing.

I really like these kind of teasers. Got it easily, maybe that is why.

Didn't even bother solving anything beyond word 1. As soon as I had the Q, aquamarine was obvious so left it at that.

Got this one before my coffee cooled down.
