Gem Quiz: Yellow and Purple Never Looked So Good Together

MY PORTMANTEAU NAME SUGGESTS something modern, like brunch, Californication or recessionista, but I’ve been around as a collector’s item for some time. Legend has it I first came to Old World notice in the 17th century when a Spanish conquistador received me as a dowry on marrying a local princess named Anahi (now the name of the main mine associated with my production). My twin purple and yellow beauty were then introduced to Europe through the conquistador’s gifts to the Spanish queen. Today I am popular with artistic cutters who invariably facet me in a rectangular shape to show off a 50/50 split between my famous yellow quartz side and my equally famous purple quartz side.

Who am I?

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
