Pyrite Jewelry

Pyrite is a certainly golden colored mineral that includes a combination of iron and sulfur. Pyrite can be found around the world, and the sulfur it contains was in olden times dig upped for a range of industrial processes. The stone sometimes contains trace amounts of gold, but not generally sufficient to make it precious. Pyrite is also occasionally applied in jewelry, under the label of marcasite. The source of the name for the stone is Greek; pyrite indicates “fire stone”. It is an indication to its prehistoric utilizes to initiate fires by striking it against another rock to make sparks.

Pyrite has a metallic gloss and an outstanding crystalline composition. Some pyrites come in other forms, such as rounds, but the most ordinary shape looks a lot like a cluttered pile of crystals with thin lines or striations along their faces. Pyrite is very fragile and shatters easily along the joins of the crystals. Dissimilar with gold, pyrite is not practicable.

A Unique Stone

I've bought this unique natural agate from a local gemstones online store. It's just came this afternoon. This stone is small, it's very suitable for a ring. This stone is unique as you can see the eight (8) number on it.

People say that the eight is a lucky number. I only trust in God, anyway. I love its uniqueness. If my husband wants this, I must find another unique stone. Hope I'm lucky to get another one. Lucky? Well, who doesn't want to be always lucky, hehehe...

Mood Rings

Have you ever heard of mood rings? A mood ring is a ring that contains a thermochromic ingredient, for instance liquid crystal. The ring modifies color in reaction to the body temperature of its wearer. The color is said, by some promoters, to specify the emotional condition of the user. Invented in 1975 by Josh Reynolds and Maris Ambats, the rings are liquid crystals bonded with quartz stones.

The hypothesis behind the thought that the ring shows the wearer's mood is based on a state that body heat changes with the emotional state of the wearer. Human body temperatures are known to fluctuate by small amounts (less than 0.5°C).

Deviations in ambient air temperature seem to have a bigger consequence on the temperature of the ring than changes in the body temperature of the wearer. No direct connection between a particular mood and a specific color has ever been validated.

Look at the Mood Ring colors listed below:

Dark blue: Happy, romantic or passionate

Blue: Calm or relaxed
Blue-green: Somewhat relaxed
Green: Normal or average
Amber: A little nervous or anxious
Gray: Very nervous or anxious
Black: Stressed, tense or feeling harried, wikipedia
