      Jelly belly is the name most people use for transparent/see through "stones" - usually lucite or glass.

      Joseph Merrin, who founded a prominent Fifth Avenue jewelry company, died Oct. 3 at home in Manhattan. He was 91 years old.

      He died of a stroke, his family said.

      Mr. Merrin came to New York from the Ukraine as a teen-ager in 1917 and soon became a jeweler's apprentice. In 1927 he opened the Merrin Jewelry Company at 530 Madison Avenue, which claimed to be the first store on Madison with air-conditioning. The company pioneered in the sale of jewelry by mail and in 1975 moved to its present location at 724 Fifth Avenue near 56th Street.
