Additional marks were sometimes employed to indicate the location where the stone had been quarried. Jewel hand made with great detail & polished to a very high standard. Next to it is the soldering to hold the pin in place. Jewel size is 7.5cm long and 3cm wide at the top bar. Chapters also contribute to specific charities which differ from state to state. Masons themselves would sometimes refer to this or that person as being a “33rd” – thus creating an air of ‘power’ surrounding the degree.
And finally, it is normal to assume that a degree numbered 33 would be ‘higher’ than one numbered 3. Kinda blows up the whole theory of this conspiracy cabal, don’t you think? There are, though, many of theserings still around, tucked into drawers or in old jewelry boxes. Masonic publications, and more will occur.

Sometimes this stone weighs twelve or fifteen pounds, and it is considered a very nice job to carry a block of this weight plumb.
The three “workmen” now form in a line about three feet distant from each other, the candidate being last.
