[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The difficulty of this puzzle is truly diabolical! There is no easy-to-find solution. You just have to find ways to fit the blocks together to open up a little bit of space at a time.

Hint Two
    You can't move the gem at all at first. You should focus initially on making room for the gem to move. Here's one small hint: move the yellow vertical bar to the top half of the puzzle.

Hint Three
    Here's your last hint. You never have to move the cross-shaped piece any farther right than the center of the puzzle. In other words, the gem has to move clockwise through the puzzle.

    Stick with it!
