History of friendship bracelets
Friendship bracelets are special bracelets. As a symbol of friendship these bracelets are given from one friend to another. The knot-craft and hand weaving used to create traditional patterns stems from Native American handcrafts, particularly from Central American tradition. According to indigenous tradition, the recipient of a friendship bracelet must wear it until the cords wear out and fall off naturally.
The idea is that the friend paid for it with the hard work and love that made it and the recipient repays the friend by honoring the work. Removing the bracelet before it naturally falls off is a sign that the friendship has gone sour. Another variation of this tradition is that the recipient of a bracelet is entitled to a wish. After the bracelet wears out and falls off naturally, the wish will come true.
How to care Gemstone?
To remove any detergent, rinse the stone in the same temperature water as the soaking solution. This type of stone can be strung on silk or nylon thread, the silk being a better choice because it fails to accumulate as much dirt as nylon. For diamonds, sapphires, and rubies, bring an equal mixture of household cleaner and water to a boil.
Opals contain almost one-third water and are therefore particularly vulnerable to even moderate temperature changes. Remove from heat and allow the gemstones to soak in the solution until it cools. Thermal shock happens when a stone is instantly transported from one extreme temperature to another. They are all nature's gifts to us. There are more than 40 popular gem varieties and many rarer collector gemstones.
Silver was an almost scared metal
Silver was considered by the Ancients just like gold. Silver was an almost scared metal. It was also consequently, of extremely restricted use. Some mineral scum in old mines of the Near-East and in some islands of the Aegean sea seem to reveal that by 5000 b.c. A method was already known to separate silver from lead. Its malleability and ductility make it ideal for ornamental purposes.
After oxidation of this mixture, it was possible to obtain the precious metals. It was also used for paying debts, in personal and religious places decoration and in utensils of the wealthiest houses. The gold and the silver were extracted from its ores and bonded to lead.
