IN MEDIEVAL TIMES, devout Christians thought the red spatterings of iron oxide that dot my chalcedony core owed their origins to drops of Christ’s blood that had seeped into the earth from below the cross. They carved images of the crucifixion and of saints from my hard body (6.5-7 on the Mohs scale). Mystical powers have always been associated with me, back to the days of Babylon. Even today, in a finely powdered form, I’m still used as an aphrodisiac in India.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
