You Will
Be
Wearing Rainbows
When you wear jewelry set with TITANIA. After years of experiments, syn-thetic Rutile is now available in facet cut
brilliants.
This magnificent substancehas been given the name of "TITANIA."
When viewed under proper lighting, round brilliants of TITANIA appearto be polished bits of rainbows. Certain remarkable optical properties makethis extreme refraction of light possible.

times more ability to produce this RAINBOW EFFECT than
any of
the first five natural gems in the above list.

jewelry
will wish to purchase a ringor pair of earrings. A free circular is available which gives you all the factsabout TITANIA JEWELRY. This circular outlines a discount plan that will per-mit you to own one of these magnificent stones at no cost to

READ THESE REMARKS BY THOSE WHO PURCHASED THE FIRST EDITION—"I would stillbuy it at $3.00 to $5.00 as it contains as much if not more meaty information for the lapidary
and
jeweler than any of the books on the market selling in that price range. " "It is better than mostlapidary handbooks." "It is the only satisfactory catalog of lapidary supplies and materials
that
I have ever seen. It is superbly illustrated and superbly printed."
