Diamond Guessing Competition # 2
« on: April 24, 2013, 10:59:29 AM »
Hi,
Thanks to the great generosity of Sioux we have a second comp this month !  This comp is for some Moranbah "Diamonds". 

The locals say that when they are cut they look just like the real thing :o

You have to guess the combined weight (in carats) of the uncut stones in the attached pic.  The closest guess wins them !

The competition will end at 11am on May 1st.

I'll announce the winner and then you PM your mailing address to me & I'll send you the prize !

Tip: The combined weight is between 100 and 200 carats.

Good luck beers
