If it weren’t for my high water content (anywhere between 3-20 percent), they say I’d basically be quartz. Which to me is like saying that if Lake Superior didn’t have water it’d be a prairie. Huh! A lake is a lake and quartz I am not. What I am is a soft, delicate, HYDRATED silicate of a certain healthy hue that is sometimes referred to as quinzite (and which yes OK, under some conditions can look like quartz).
Who am I?

Aging Inventory Sale? There’s a Science to Maximizing Results

Craig Husar, president of Lyle Husar Designs of Milwaukee, WI, has tried to organize sales of his aging inventory before he let Wilkerson do one for him. “If it had been up to me, I probably would have used the same methods I’ve always used and I would have gotten the same results I’ve always been disappointed with,” he says. After Wilkerson, there’s no going back. “Everything Wilkerson brought to the table just elevated this event higher than anything I’ve ever experienced before.”

Last summer, we had a customer come in to pick up a pearl necklace that she “swore” she left with us to repair. When we couldn’t find it in our repair box, she got really mad and threatened to call the Better Business Bureau on us. We were all stymied. None of our records showed that she had left that necklace with us. A few days later, she sent her husband in with a plate piled high with cookies to apologize. She had found the necklace in her jewelry box. She hadn’t brought it to us after all. Those cookies were very sweet indeed! — Chay Rees Runnels, Rees Jewelry, Nacogdoches, TX
