Sheila Purdy (1921-2016) April 16, 2016 Purdys Jewellery and Gems
It is with heavy hearts that we say farewell to our beloved 'Aunt' Sheila Purdy, co-founder of Purdy's Jewellery. Sheila Kathleen Junkin was born on August 31, 1921 in Bobcaygeon, Ontario. After attending Shaw Business College in Toronto, she married Grant Purdy in 1942. Together, Sheila and Grant opened Purdy's Watch Shop in Bobcaygeon in November of 1944. Over the years, Sheila and Grant grew the business into a full selection jewellery store until their retirement in 1985 upon selling the business to their niece Marylynn and her husband, Dave Lindsay. Aunt Sheila loved working in the store. She especially loved talking to and getting to know her customers personally. Sheila was an active member in the community volunteering for the curling club, her local church, and community care. She continued to live in Bobcaygeon in her family home while enjoying her retirement. Aunt Sheila is survived by her daughter, Sharon, and is predeceased by her husband, Grant (1994) and her daughter, Carole Anne (2013). Dave, Marylynn, and all the staff of Purdy's Jewellery will sorely miss her.

Gem of the Month August 4, 2015 Purdys Jewellery and Gems
August's birthstone is Peridot.

Colour: Yellowish-Green Mineral: Olivine Mohs Hardness: 6.5 to 7 Anniversary: 15th
Why We Love This Gem:
1. Peridot crystals can be found in meteorites: some rare extraterrestrial crystals are even big enough to facet as cut gemstones.
2. Most gems are coloured by impurities such as iron. Peridot's colour is intrinsically yellow-green. Higher-quality stones have an intense colour.
3. Peridot has extremely high double refraction: when you look closely through the gem, you can see two of each pavilion facet.
