Hey guys,

Due to some unfortunate RL circumstances, sietepecados, everythingshiny, and I have decided to put this comm on hiatus.  We were planning to have one of us around to run it next round with the help of a co-mod, but other responsibilities conspired against us and none of us have a lot of free time for LJ at the moment. :(

We hope to be able to bring this comm back in the future but for now, thanks to everyone who participated and voted and cheered each other on in the past three rounds.  We all had a lot of fun running this comm because of you guys.

If luck is on our side, we'll see you elsewhere around the icon community!

So overall you have a week to post your works!

Black & White... one of the most classic contrast themes that everyone knows of. A personal favorite as well. It also happens to have many different layers, beyond just the visual. Selective lighting can give much more shine to certain places; or give your image that softened factor. Remember; just because it's black and white doesn't mean it's lacking color. All you need is to see it a different way.

Mod's Note: This amazing challenge was created by the members of Team Bright especially for you Team Night! So your task for next week is to make them a holliday gift and create icons inspired by their post! Also be on the lookout for more inspiration @neutral_court!

Humans like shiny things. In antiquity, the most prized and precious gemstones were the diamond, ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst. Pearls, though organic and not mineral were also prized and used in jewellery and artwork. Over time these gemstones have become imbued with meaning & symbolism in human cultures.
Metals have always had great importance to human societies, especially the most rare elements gold & silver. And other metals are important for making tools & technology.

For this challenge you must make icons representing the gems and metals using the word prompts, colors & styles listed for each one. Please make each of your icons representing only one gemstone or metal at a time (eg: Don't combine ruby & emerald).
You may mix & match to make a collection of icons representing the various gemstones & metals.
