This Lovely Green Gem Has a Feather-Like Appearance

There are places gemologists fear to tread, but not marketers, which is why I’m sometimes referred to as “chlorite jade”— a name that captures my lovely green nature but misleads on my mineral make-up. Formally, I’m known as “clinochlore,” but if it’s sales you’re after, I recommend yet another name — one that reflects my chatoyancy-inspired resemblance to feathers and evokes divine intervention rather than an industrial cleaner.

Who am I?

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
