The heavy couple (Posted on 2016-04-22) Difficulty: 3 of 5
We want to find the heaviest and the second heaviest gem out of 32 precious stones having distinct weights and similar shape.
Only simple balance scale is available.

Specify the method to get the correct result within a minimal number of weighing.
