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?

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
