Unakite is a true rock: a composite material made up of multiple other stones. This gives Unakite its green-moss-on-brick appearance. It's named for the Unaka Mountains in the southeastern United States where it was first discovered.
Metaphysically, Unakite is believed to be a stone of balance - grounding the self while bringing emotions and spirituality together.
About Argentium® Sterling Silver
Argentium® – The Finest Silver - is a purer version of Sterling Silver that is also highly tarnish resistant. Standard "Sterling Silver" is an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This is why you may also see "925 Sterling Silver" for items that are Sterling Silver.
Argentium® is made with 93.5% silver and 6.5% other metals, including germanium and copper, which gives Argentium® additional beneficial properties for jewelry makers. For my jewelry, the biggest benefit of using Argentium® instead of regular Sterling Silver is that it is anti-tarnish. It is also not plated, it is 100% Argentium® Silver - so there is no worry about plating rubbing off. Argentium® jewelry is always hypoallergenic.
In addition to these benefits, Argentium® is responsibly manufactured, is ethically sourced, and is certified to be made with 100% recycled silver.
NOTE: Argentium® Silver should never be cleaned using silver "dip" cleaners. Please either wipe with a soft cloth or use only water and mild dish soap if you need to clean your Argentium® Sterling Silver jewelry.
