Another one for the unique Energy Rings collection. The One Turn Moon Star Energy Ring. This particular one is made from pure blackened niobium and I used the controlled oxidizing process to give it the illusion of colors. The color in this case is pretty close to black.
I say the ILLUSION of color because the oxide buildup that is deposited on the surface is actually clear. Being clear, it acts like a prism and breaks up light to give us the colors we see. Each color represents a different thickness of the oxide. After a point, it gets so heavy that it looks black.
Niobium is a pure element. Number 41 in the periodic table. For more information on this hypoallergenic niobium and the coloring process I use, contact me.
