Just a quick reminder EnAbler Tribe...

Your tribe wants to get as many correct answers to the challenge as possible. This will ensure that you are individually saved from getting voted off because your tribe will be spared tribal council. So, right now, it is best to work as a team, build alliances and outplay, outwit and outlast the other tribe. It is also important to know that if you do go to tribal council, in order to save your a**, you have to encourage everyone in your tribe to answer the tribal council question...your chances improve with more members responding.

Tribe Enablers, here are your 3 questions and tie breaker that need answers by midnight Wednesday 30th May.  Work together, pool your knowledge and don't fall for the sneaky tactics of the other tribe.  Good luck castaways.

1. Why doesn't GIA use A, B & C when grading color in diamonds?

2.  What shape of diamond is a twinned crystal whose shape is suited to cutting fancy shapes such as hearts and pears?

3.  Which city is known as the 'Diamond City'?

Tiebreaker:  How many visitors did CDI have for the whole month of February - (clue, it's over 5,000 but below 10,000).

Due to not being sure if who ever posts first wins, we're going to post our answers now...

For those who I didn't communicate with, I hope you're not mad, but until I hear further, me and 2 other members wanted to post ASAP... Gosh I hope you're not mad!! If we find out that it's not on a first come first basis, I will wait till I hear from others.  I, along with the members I talked with are POSITIVE of our answers as we have concrete proof :)

Here offered by Tribe EnAblers are the final answers to the challenge set on Tuesday May 29th:

1. Why doesn't GIA use A, B & C when grading color in diamonds?
In a nutshell? They wanted a fresh start.  But GIA states:

"Why does the GIA color grading system start at D? Before GIA introduced the GIA D-Z Color Grading Scale, a variety of other symbols were loosely applied throughout the industry. Not only were A, B, and C used without clear definition, but some dealers, taking a cue from the poultry business perhaps, started grading their diamonds double A (AA).

Other systems used numbers-both Arabic (0, 1, 2, 3) and Roman (I, II, III). Most dubious of all were systems that relied on descriptive terms like "gem blue" or "blue white." Terms like these are notoriously susceptible to misinterpretation.

So the creators of the GIA Color Scale wanted to start fresh. They wanted symbols that would not have any association with earlier systems. Thus the GIA scale starts at the letter D. There may be some people still clinging to other grading systems, but no other system has the clarity and universal acceptance of the GIA scale."


2.  What shape of diamond is a twinned crystal whose shape is suited to cutting fancy shapes such as hearts and pears?
macle twin

3.  Which city is known as the 'Diamond City'?
Antwerp

To clarify for you guys, it's not a first come, first served basis.  We look at the answers for each tribe's questions to decide a winner.  If both tribes answer the questions correctly, it comes down to the tie breaker - which, incidentally Tribe EnAblers, you haven't answered.............I'll allow you to make an additional post due to a little confusion........... :)
