Platinium

Platinum is a whitish-gray metal that is thirty times as rare as gold. In fact, if all the platinum in the world was poured into an olympic sized pool. It would barely cover one’s ankles – all the world’s gold would fill more than three pools. Moreover, platinum is twice as dense as gold. A platinum ring will be twice the weight of an identical ring cast in gold. And what makes platinum even more expensive, is the fact that one ounce of refined platinum takes up to ten tons of mined platinum ore, whereas an ounce of gold requires a mere 5 tons.

The general rule is that an alloy of platinum (see discussion on alloying) tends to be harder than an equivalent alloy of gold. A 95% gold alloy (95% gold content and 5% alloy) would typically be softer than a 95% platinum alloy. Platinum will resist breaks, chips & cracks, and heat & chemicals better than gold. And, because of its higher density and strength, platinum tends to retain its finish and wear better than gold.

Nearly all Platinum is 950 (95% pure) with just 5% alloy. Once well polished, platinum will maintain its finish virtually tarnish free forever. As with any metal, the polished surface of some platinum alloys may scratch with every-day wear. But when it does scratch, the metal is not lost, merely displaced. Thus, the volume of Platinum in a setting should last a lifetime. Over time, matte finish platinum tends to burnish and highly polished platinum tends to matte.

With reasonable protection from knocks and abrasion, highly polished platinum can be brilliant and kept that way. A large proportion of platinum-palladium alloy is plated thinly with rhodium, which scarcely alters the color but does impart some extra wear resistance (see discussion on rhodium electroplating). To add to its already impressive array of features, platinum is also hypoallergenic – providing a lifetime of allergy-free durability to its fortunate owner.

Emeralds

 

St. Hildegard of Bingen, the noted lithologist, declared, “All the green of nature is concentrated within the Emerald.”[Megemont, 80-81] Representing youth in the age of man, the power of this lush crystal stirs the soul like the heart of spring, symbolizing hope and the future, renewal and growth. It is a Seeker of Love and a Revealer of Truth, inspiring an ongoing search for meaning, justice, compassion and harmony.

Called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Emerald opens and nurtures the heart and the Heart Chakra. Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Emerald promotes friendship, balance between partners, and is particularly known for providing domestic bliss, contentment and loyalty. It was dedicated in the ancient world to the goddess Venus for its ability to insure security in love.

Emerald is also a stone of great vision and intuition, associated with the eyes and sight, long believed to foretell future events and reveal one’s truths. It is a stone of wisdom, enhancing memory and increasing mental clarity. It combines intelligence with discernment, and brings to the conscious mind what is unconsciously known. Emerald also increases focus and intent, activating psychic abilities and opening clairvoyance. Traditionally it was used as a protection against enchantment and spells.

Diamonds

Diamond is the hardest natural substance on earth, but if placed in an oven at 1405 degrees Fahrenheit (763 degrees Celsius), it will vanish. Only a small amount of carbon dioxide will have been released. Diamonds are formed over a period of a billion or more years deep within the earth’s crust – about 90 miles (150km) below the surface – and are pushed to the surface by volcanoes. Most diamonds are found in volcanic rock, called Kimberlite, or in the sea, having been carried away by rivers after they were pushed to the surface. A diamond is 58 times harder than the next hardest mineral on earth, corundum, from which rubies and sapphires are formed.

It was only during the 15th century when it was discovered that the only way to cut diamonds was with other diamonds. Still, diamonds are brittle; if hit hard with a hammer, they will shatter.

Not all diamonds are white. Impurities lend diamonds a hue of blue, red, orange, yellow, green and even black. A green diamond is the rarest. Diamond, however, is not the rarest gemstone. That title goes to a pure red ruby. Diamonds actually are found in fair abundance; thousands are mined every year. 80% of them are not suitable for jewelry and are used in industry. The remainder, of higher clarity, are cut for the jewelry trade and end up in jewelry stores.
