Bring a friend and saved REGISTERED JEWELER, AMERICAN OEM SOCIETY GEMS OF THE HEAVENS Birthstones are a timeless tradition and many people use this lovely custom to help them select gifts for their loved ones. Did you know that there are also gemstones for days of the week and even for hours of the day? It would take quite a treasure chest were one to attempt to honor every gemstone custom. Here is a charming piece from an unknown poet which celebrates gems according to the zodiac. If you would cherish friendship due, In aquarjus well you'll do To wear this gem of warmest hue- the garnet. From passion and from care kept free Shall pisces' children ever be Who wear so all the world may see- the amethyst. Who on this world of ours his eyes In aries opens shall be wise If always on his hand there lies- the bloodstone. If on your hand this stone you bind, You in taurus born will find 'twill cure diseases of the mind- the sapphire. Gemini's children health and wealth command, And all the ills of age withstand, Who wear their rings on either hand- of agate. If b:>rn in cancer's sign, they say, Your life will joyful be alway, If you take with you on your way- an emerald. When youth to manhood shall have grown, Under leo lorn and lone 'twill have lived but for this stone- the onyx. Success will bless whate'er you do, Through virgo's sign, if only you Place on your hand her own gem true- carnelian. Through libra's sign it is quite well To free yourself from evil spell, For in her gem surcease doth dwell- the chrysolite. Through scorpio this gem so fair Is that which every one should ' wear, Of tears of sad repentance bear- the beryl. Who first comes to this world below Under Sagittarius should know That their true gem should ever show- a topaz. Those who live in Capricorn No trouble shall their brows adorn If they this glowing gem have worn- the ruby. Pilcher 's 102 S. Jefferson 581-5505
