Sibling Rivalry

Who loved him more?
Overlapping but separate spheres
Our relationships unique
Precious gems he made
a necklace of
Wore near his heart

What sense is there in
Saphire, lapis, and jade
jostling for proximity with
Diamonds, emeralds
Seashells and ebony beads?
The most eclectic necklace
That ever was made
