    Stuck already.

    "Greeting" and "tremble" makes me think of the word "shake". Am I on the right track?

    Incorrect.
    The cryptic part of the clue should help you.
    So what other words have you got to work with?

    Posse is not the correct answer. Don't forget, you have already established that the clue definition is related to gemstones. Keep that in mind.

    Keep going...

    I'm a top-hat wearing gentlemen, I do not know of these 'informal' words that you speak of

    But really, I don't have any friends so I don't need to know the words

    Erm, Clan?
    Group?
    Mates?
    Partners?
