Australian mining giant Rio Tinto recently discovered a violet diamond, which is set to tour various cities across the world beginning this summer, Science Alert writes. The article says that the diamond was found in Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine, which produces 90 percent of the world’s pink and red diamonds. The diamond weighed 9.17 carats when it was pulled out of the ground, and it has since been crafted down to 2.83 carats. In the last 32 years, just 12 carats of polished stones of this nature have been produced.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
