I just cleared my jewel a few minutes ago. Read this tutorial. It's the best one I've seen.

I used isopropyl alcohol on my jewel and it took the green paint off easily. Maybe give that a shot

Rubbing alcohol and isopropyl are two totally different products.Rubbing alcohol has alot less alcohol contant than isopropyl. isopropyl has a 99% alcohol content and is used for industrial cleaning and will do a better job

Exactly. Worked miracles on my jewels. Perfectly clear w/ no scratches and no chance of melting the jewel into a little blob
