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?

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”

As Gene says: “There’s a lot to consider there.”

We’re not trained in psychiatry or counseling, but we have to wonder if implementing better business practices might clear up a lot of Gene’s anxiety.
