History of The Fellowcraft Jewel

The Clifton Fellowcraft Jewel is an honorary token presented to those who have, by faithful and conscientious work, served Clifton-Gaston Allen Lodge.  Its idea was conceived and the design developed by Clifton men.  Being a reward for service, it cannot be purchased.

For the history connected with the design, we are indebted to a Masonic research authority, Dr. C. H. Merz, of Sandusky, Ohio.

It is an exact reproduction of a clay tessera or amulet

found in an Egyptian tomb and is at least 40 centuries  old.  The geometric figure illustrates the 47th Problem of Euclid, which is significant because it has appeared so consistently through Masonry.

The Fellowcraft Jewel was assigned by Brother Arthur J. Laws to Clifton Lodge, March 16, 1921, and recorded in Volume 114, Page 171 of Transfer of Patents at the United States Patent Office, October 8, 1921.
