Gem Quiz: I’ve Been the King of Stones in Delaware Since 1977

Sillimanite 1Andalusite, kyanite, and me,

We few, we happy few,

We happy band of polymorphous alumino-silicates …

OK, so Henry V I may not be, but I am the king of stones in Delaware, where they made me their official state mineral in 1977. But my first honor was to be named after the founder of the American Journal of Science.

Who am I?

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
