I don’t blame René Just Haüy; he just wanted a Greek-inspired name that reflected the way I “scatter” when put to the blowpipe flame. Still, my name evokes images of toenail fungus in the minds of many. So it’s no surprise I’ve become better known by trade names such as csarite, ottomanite, turkizite, and zultanite, which play on my connections to the Anatolian Mountains, the only place I’m found in gem quality.

Who am I?

Guess this gem for a chance to win a “Jewelry Geek” T-shirt. Be sure to include your full name and the name and address of your store. The contest winner will be selected from among correct answers to this question.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
