Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.
Fine silver is 99.9% pure and is generally too soft for producing functional objects; therefore, the silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength while preserving the ductility and beauty of the precious metal. Other metals can replace the copper, usually with the intent to improve various properties of the basic sterling alloy such as reducing casting porosity, eliminating fire scale, and increasing resistance to tarnish. These replacement metals include germanium, zinc and platinum, as well as a variety of other additives, including silicon and boron. A number of alloys, such as Argentium sterling silver, have appeared in recent years, formulated to lessen fire scale or to inhibit tarnish, and this has sparked heavy competition among the various manufacturers, who are rushing to make claims of having the best formulation. However, no one alloy has emerged to replace copper as the industry standard, and alloy development is a very active area.
Chemically, silver is not very reactive—it does not react with oxygen or water at ordinary temperatures, so does not easily form a silver oxide. However, it is attacked by common components of atmospheric pollution: silver sulfide slowly appears as a black tarnish during exposure to airborne compounds of sulfur (byproducts of the burning of fossil fuels and some industrial processes), and low level ozone reacts to form silver oxide. As the purity of the silver decreases, the problem of corrosion or tarnishing increases because other metals in the alloy, usually copper, may react with oxygen in the air.
The black silver sulfide (Ag2S) is among the most insoluble salts in aqueous solution, a property that is exploited for separating silver ions from other positive ions.
Sodium chloride (NaCl) or common table salt is known to corrode silver-copper alloy, typically seen in silver salt shakers where corrosion appears around the holes in the top.
Several products have been developed for the purpose of polishing silver that serve to remove sulfur from the metal without damaging or warping it. Because harsh polishing and buffing can permanently damage and devalue a piece of antique silver, valuable items are typically hand-polished to preserve the unique patinas of older pieces. Techniques such as wheel polishing, which are typically performed by professional jewelers or silver repair companies, are reserved for extreme tarnish or corrosion.
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold, pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
Put your bracelet on last, after cosmetics, perfume, hairspray and other chemical substances that can be corrosive.
Store your bracelet separately, in a jewelry box or pouch, to avoid scratching.
After wearing, wipe your bracelet with a soft cloth.

Essential Oils Diffusing Bracelets
Simply add a drop to your finger and rub into the lava stone. Or drop oils directly onto the stone and allow it to soak in.
Made from igneous rock left behind from cooling volcanic eruptions, lava stones are lightweight and porous. When carefully crafted into beads, they make a perfect vessel for essential oils. Lightly applied to the surface, the oils permeate the stone and hold the scent for a day or more, depending on the oil.
Yes, you can! Simply wait a day or so between applications so that the scent of the previously applied oil has faded. Or try layering oils for your own custom scents.
Washing is not recommended. Simply wait a day or two between oil applications for the scent to fade. Or just layer your essential oils for unique scent combinations. You can use your lava stone indefinitely for your essential oils. It won’t wear out.
High quality essential oils carry little to no risk of staining clothes. Be sure to allow time for the oil to fully absorb into the stone before wearing your lava stone jewelry.
