About grossular garnet: Green grossular garnet is a member of the traditional garnet family, but bears colors in shades of mossy greens. It was first discovered in the far reaches of Siberia in the 1800's, originally named gooseberry garnet after the Chinese gooseberry, known in the U.S. as Kiwi fruit. A stone of balance, grossular garnet helps keep emotions in check, while at the same time bringing in the voice of reason.
About 14k gold fill: 14K gold filled wire is a professional jewelers grade wire. Gold filled wire is not plated. It is a tube of solid 14K gold mechanically bonded to a brass or silver base. There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate wire. This layer of gold must be a minimum of 1/20th of the total metal weight to be called gold filled. The color looks exactly like 14k gold. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewelry.
