Glass bangles, husband and luck
Often you will see Indian women wearing huge armfuls of glass bangles, even while doing day-to-day chores. It is said that bangles bring safety and luck to ones husband. If a woman breaks glass bangles especially a large amount of them her husband is in danger.
With all that power a woman and her bangles wield, a husband better be on his best behavior if he knows what's good for him! This traditional Indian holiday is a celebration. The smaller the bangles around your wrist, the less likely they are to break. Many Indian women participate in every year that honors their husbands and their god-sisters.
Gemstones are identified by gemologists
Gemstones are identified by gemologists. The first characteristic a gemologist uses to identify a gemstone is its chemical composition. Gems are characterized in terms of refractive index, dispersion, specific gravity, hardness, cleavage, fracture, and luster. They may exhibit pleochroism or double refraction. Who describe gems and their characteristics using technical terminology specific to the field of gemology.
Next, many gems are crystals which are classified by their crystal system such as cubic or trigonal or monoclinic. They may have luminescence and a distinctive absorption spectrum. For example, diamonds are made of carbon (C) and rubies of aluminium oxide (Al2O3). Another term used is habit, the form the gem is usually found in. For example diamonds, which have a cubic crystal system, are often found as octahedrons.
High quality natural gemstones
We purchase and trade in a wide range of high quality natural gemstones from around the world. Alloys that are composed of semi metals with metals are classified as sulfides but are sometimes listed as elements. For thousands of years, gold has been valued as a global currency, a commodity, an investment and simply an object of beauty.
We personally select and purchase rough and cut stones. They usually share similarities to other sulfides in their physical properties. These minerals are in the Selenides, the Tellurides, the Antimonides and the Arsenides Subclasses of the Sulfide Class. The main difference between elemental alloys and these semi-metal alloys is the presence of covalent bonding in these minerals as opposed to the strictly metallic bonding in pure metals and their metal alloys. Our specialty is top quality cutting.
