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

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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
