Here’s the Answer to July’s Gem Quiz

And congratulations to our winner.INSTORE coprolite

For our July Gem Quiz, we described a “gemstone that tells a prehistoric tale.”

We noted that it often has a spiraled form and that it can tell you who traveled where, who ate what, and who killed whom back as far as the Cambrian period. Its name is taken from the Greek words for “dung” and “stone” — although your 5-year-old would possibly just call it dinosaur poo.

And the answer is: Coprolite.

Congratulations to this month’s Gem Quiz winner, James Hall of Rockman’s Gems & Jewellers in Amarillo, TX, who will receive a “Jewelry Geek” T-shirt.

Hall quipped: “Dino skat. I always try to keep some in the store. It is just a lot of FUN to have!”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
