Diamond Quartz Twig Rings
Handcrafted copper jewelry made by me at home in my studio from the finest raw materials that mother nature has to offer. Sustainably harvested and crafted into fashionable heirloom quality jewelry.
These Diamond Quartz twig rings are made with real twigs that I formed myself. Each Ring has at least 1 raw Diamond Quartz stone but most have 2. They are simple and beautiful nature rings perfect for everyday and I really love them as a thumb ring! They are made through a process of electroforming with copper. The copper is given a nice vintage patina to pull out all the details of the twig and then sealed to help preserve the finish.
To further preserve the finish, I recommend that you don't submerge it in water for long periods of time. This would include things like showering, swimming and washing dishes. It is ok to wash your hands, just make sure to dry the ring well.
The sealer is also supposed to help with protecting your finger from turning green but in my experience I have found that my finger will turn green when my hands are sweaty or if i wear it while sleeping. The green will not hurt you and can easily be washed off with soap and water.
Everyone reacts differently with copper and some people don't turn green at all. Many people don't mind the green because of the healing properties you receive from the copper.
Please allow for some wiggle room on size. They are made from real twigs so they aren't perfectly smooth and round on the inside which makes it hard to get a really precise measurement. I do my best to judge how big they are by measurement and feel.
Diamond Quartz Properties:
Herkimer Quartz "Diamonds" are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually transparent with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid Light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals, and are used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualization applications.
Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. They are reported to be harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals. What they lack in physical size, they more than make up for in spirit energy.
This mineral owes its name to Herkimer County, New York, USA, the principal place where it is found. The small, double-terminated crystals are short and stubby, formed in a hard rock matrix giving them their strength. They may be exceptionally clear and colorless, or contain rainbow inclusions, air bubbles, or black carbon deposits. A small percentage of these crystals contain enhydro inclusions of water. Some are smoky rather than clear, and similar-looking crystals have been found at other sites, but generally do not have the same hardness or high gloss of genuine Herkimer Diamonds.
