solution of this question.
But none of these are

For our August offer

A Xcw Vorlt Jeweler Discourse About a
Tray of Precious Gciii!!.
Ill t!io bijj show window of a jewelry
store resti'd last week a small tray that
gathered a crowd of curious spectators to
the window. Kvory tinio tho sunlight
played upon the pinto (ilnns tho tray cor
uscated with iirimnatie hues of dazzling
brilliancy. The tray is well known to the
trade. It is designed to display tho re
niiirkahla variations of tho color of large
African mine diamonds, and contains ex
amples of all tho colors known. It pos
sesses meat interest for novices in gems,
and the jeweler is called upon half a dozen
times a day to explain the beauties of the
specimens. "i
"It took a long time to pet this collec
tion together," the jeweler said, "and it is
the only one in the town of tho kind thus
arranged. You see here the brown dia
mond, tho absinthe, the canary or yellow,
the gem, tho pink, the rose and the coiieo
and the green diamond. The effect of these
combinations in tho sunlight is entrancing.
Each predominant line seems to impart a
distinct luster to tho prismatic scintilla
tions. When the tray is swung to and fro
in tho sunbeams, it- gives forth, as you sen,
a perfect blaze of rainbow colors. . Tlieso
gems also illustrato different cuttings of
the diamonds. Wero thoy all set in a
bracelet, or a brooch, or a necklace, they
would make a rarely beautiful trinket, but
it would cost a heap of money."
The jeweler picked out one sparkler with
a pair of diamond tweezers and hold it for
ward in the show window.
"This is a IJrazilian gem," he said, "like
which there is only one other in the world,
in Paris, and the French one is not as puro
or as iVrge as this. This is what is called
a black diamond, and is valued nt 2,500.
It weighs a trillo less than four carats. Its
beauty lies in the fact that it changes its
color in different lights. In this strong
sunlight you see it is almost black. It gives
forth a prismatic radiance greater than
that emitted by the best of the black gems.
In gaslight, you observe, the black hue be
comes a rich golden brown, and the play of
colors is changed too. Diamonds of this
sort nro regarded by the superstitious mi
ners as 'gold stones,' that is, gems possess
ing a power of imparting good luck to tho
owner in tho search for hidden gold. This
stone was secured In Paris, whither it was
brought in rough for cutting by a Iiio Ja
neiro merchant.
"Here," continued tho jeweler, "is an
other curiosity." Ha picked up a three
carat wliito stone with the tweezers. "It
is a specimen that will prove to you that
there is a differeiieo of sex in gems. This
is what is called tho female, a multiplying
He held tho gem under a strong magni
fying glass and pointed to four or five
smaller diamonds clustered about one of
the facets at the edgo of tho table of tho
stone. "Tho 711.1I0 gem," the jeweler said,
"is sharp pointed and never gathers these
embryo gems. There is a fine specimen
alongside that pink stone. It surprises
most people who see those specimens to be
told that they are of different sex as well
as color, but such Is tho fact." Jewelers'
