* AllNaturalGemPolish: Averted. In the episode "Afterlife and Death", a diamond from 1500 B.C. has an irregular shape and the fact that it has to be cut and polished now to be considered beautiful plays a big part in the plot.

The [[ActionGirl tough girl]] heroine, Sydney Fox (Tia Carrere), is a renowned Relic Hunter, but also has a day job as a university professor of Ancient Studies. She somehow manages to keep her job despite taking a ridiculous amount of unscheduled time off to Relic Hunt (occasionally this is LampShaded by a boss who complains Sydney is never in, or justified by having her employer send her off on a relic hunt).

Her Hugh Grantesque teaching assistant Nigel Bailey (Christien Anholt) accompanies her on hunts and largely gets used as the comic relief, whilst secretaries Claudia (seasons one and two) and Karen Petruski (season three) hold the fort back at Trinity College. The latter two are respectively played by Lindy Booth and Tanja Reichert.

* NumerOneDime: In "Diamond in the Rough", Sydney is hired to find the lucky baseball glove of 'Smiling' Jimmy Jonesboro, which was stolen during the 1946 World Series. Essentially worthless (Jonesboro bought for one dollar at a garage sale), he was willing to pay $5000 to get it back in 1946. In the present day, a current major league player is willing to pay a seven figure sum to locate it, [[MagicFeather in the hope it will give him the same mojo Jonesboro had]].
