Luminescent jewels: Unusually shaped fluorescent supramolecular clusters assemble into one-dimensional π-stacked supramolecular beads to eventually crystallize with a wide range of solvent molecules (see picture). The included solvent molecules modulate the fluorescence colors of the inclusion crystals from blue to orange-yellow as is known for the colors of gemstones.
