Gem Quiz: July’s Gemstone Tells a Prehistoric Tale

mm

Published

on

And you think the diamond in your engagement ring tells a story! Look deep into my often spiraled form and I’ll tell you who traveled where, who ate what, and who killed whom back as far as the Cambrian period. My name is taken from the Greek words for “dung” and “stone.” Although your five-year-old would possibly just call me dinosaur poo. I’m not precious, but I am valuable to historians, and a niche favorite of jewelry designers on Etsy and of collectors at Tucson.

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.”
