Thank you Mamyalynne; that makes 12A Pearl's degrees (6) W - T - - -

No apparent theme this week, Scorpiojo, just to make it a bit harder.
As I have suggested elsewhere, there is a partial theme of the 23rd. Psalm, but in these instances, only 12Aa - as far as I can see - qualifies.
I think 12 might be waters. Water has the meaning of lustre applied to precious stones and would fit with (still waters) Ps 23.
