monthly meeting Monday evening,
November 17, at the Woman's
Clubhouse, with the president,
Mrs. William Marlow, in
charge of the business session.
The music chairman, Mrs. J.
M. Derr, Jr., gave final plans for

Mrs. Paul Harvel, Jr., introduced
Mr. Raymond Landsberger who

An ardent student of gemology,
Mr. Landsberger intrigued his
audience both by giving facts
about stones and by displaying
some of them. There was one
diamond that cost $15,500.00
and one which required 3 1-2
years to cut. There were wedding
rings to demionstrate types of
settings, diamonds to show brilllnace,
a diamond bracelet, a
lovely star sapphire, and fiery
opalB reflecting diamonds surrounding
Diamonds, as nearly as scientists
can determine, are firom 3,000
to 4,000 years old. They
have never been duplicated nor
made commercially. The diamond
syndicate in London sells rough
diamonds and usually keeps the
supply about 30 per cent behind
demand. Value of a diamond depends
on brilliance, cut and lustre.
Inasmuch as opals contain
7 to 10 per cent water, they
should (be oiled each month. Synthetic
stores are those which
have chemicals arranged in exactly
the same way as a genuine
stone. Only three can be made
synthetically; rubies, sapphires
and emeralds. Rubies and sapphires
have exactly the same
chemical composition and acquire
their particular color purely by
accident. There are two kinds of
red pearls: oriental, that is,
those made without aid from
man, and cultured pearls.
Mr. LamdBberger spoke on
sterling and silver plate and
recommended that sterling be
used fre<Juepatly, both to give
pleasure to the owner and to increase
