What is the most common jewel in the collection?
Visitors often wonder what is the most common jewel in the museum’s collections. It’s not a 14th Degree jewel or a 33rd Degree jewel—in fact, it’s not even a Scottish Rite Jewel—rather it is a jewel of the Blue Lodge. The answer is a Past Master’s Jewel. A Past Master is one who served as a Master of a Lodge and the jewel symbolizes his term as an officer.
