    This one might be tricky. 94 points awarded for the correct answer:

    This gemstone was first discovered in the mountains of a certain country, on the birthday of the leader of that country, thus it's name. What is it called?

    It' worth 94 because it might be tough to solve with the limited info I've provided. I'll start giving hints if it looks like you guys are totally lost......

    Alexandrite

    Edit: Named after the Russian Czar Alexander because it was discovered on the birthday that he became old enough to rule if you wanted that too.

    Yeah Canny, got to think like a thinking man

    Hit up lists of gemstone types, run down the index quick, see anything that resembles an actual name, hit it
