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

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
