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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
