The Murrieta Police Department in Murrieta, California added a new badge into their police department to celebrate their 20 th Anniversary on July 31, 2012. The Murrieta Police Department was incorporated on July 1, 1991 and established on July 31, 1992. Murrieta’s new oval shaped badge will be worn from July 31, 2012 until July 31, 2013.

The badge is a solid gold oval shape featuring a diamond with a number centered in the middle of it. James Gruwell of the Murrieta Police department stated, “The city introduced the diamond as their official slogan to mean, ‘Gem of the Valley.’ The gem is displayed on all badges, street signs, police cars, and on some of the city’s buildings and structures.” The legend behind the gem dates back to when settlers first arrived in the valley; they felt that Murrieta’s soil grew the best crops so they deemed it to be the “gem of the valley.”

Murrieta Police Chief Mike Baray stated, “Since 1992, the men and women of the Murrieta Police Department have been committed to making Murrieta the Safest City in Riverside County, by forging a partnership with the community to effectively fight crime and improve the quality of life. For the past decade Murrieta has repeatedly been ranked as the Safest City in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, as reported annually by the FBI. This unrivaled success is a direct result of the dedication and commitment of the men and women of this Department and their success in establishing true partnerships with the community.”

The Crystal Gems , also referred to as the Rebels , are a group of Gems established by Rose Quartz who, unlike the rest of their kind, seek to protect the Earth instead of exploiting it and are the self-proclaimed guardians of humanity. Their title as the "Crystal Gems" distinguishes them from the Homeworld Gems .

Around this time, Rose Quartz is believed to have shattered Pink Diamond . The Crystal Gems continue to fight against Homeworld's ever-growing army, due to the newly created Beta Kindergarten.

At this point, Earth is no longer seen as a viable colony to Homeworld. With one final effort to wipe out the Crystal Gems, the Diamonds unleashed the Corrupting Light , corrupting any Gems exposed to the blast. Rose was able to protect herself, Garnet, and Pearl from becoming corrupted with her shield.

Russian mining giant Alrosa trumpeted its big-diamond cutting prowess with the unveiling of The Dynasty, a 51.38-carat round brilliant-cut sparkler.

The 57-facet, D-color, VVS1 gem is the largest of five polished diamonds all culled from The Romanovs, a 179-carat rough stone recovered from the Nyurbinskaya kimberlite pipe in the Russian Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in 2015. The cutting and polishing process took 18 months. All five stones will be offered for sale during an online auction in November.

Fourteen months ago, the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) and Jewelers of America (JA) announced that spinel — the great imposter — would be joining peridot as an official birthstone for the month of August. It was only the third time in the past 105 years that the modern birthstone list had been amended.
