Gem Quiz: Guess the Name of This Rock Nerd’s Rock

mm

Published

on

I was discovered in France in 1845 and named after a fabled alchemist from the 15th century who was supposedly the first to identify the properties of antimony (of which I’m a derivative). But let’s set aside the murkiness of that back story and focus on what we do know: I’m highly lustered, form in sprays of crystals and am dimorphous with the mineral senarmontite (as is the case with graphite and diamond, we share the same chemistry but have different structures). Yes, I’m a rock nerd’s rock. But I can also look cool hanging from drop earrings.

Who am I?

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
