Lions prefer Rubies and Peridot.
Centaurs prefer Topaz and Turquoise.
Bulls prefer Diamonds and Emeralds.
Crabs prefer Pearls and Rubies.
Scorpions prefer Opal and Topaz.
Dragons, however, have no preference for any of the above gems, and enjoy them all equally.

Which of the following pairs of gems would a FISH prefer, and why?
A) Sapphire and Opal
B) Amethyst and Bloodstone
C) Garnet and Peridot
D) Topaz and Pearls



Answer

Each creature above corresponds to a member of the zodiac and prefers the gems that are the birthstones for the two months it overlaps. Dragons are a Chinese astrological symbol that covers a whole year, and so the dragon likes all the birthstones. The fish is Pisces which covers part of February and March, so it would prefer B) Amethyst and Bloodstone, the respective birthstones of those two months.
