About Strawberry Quartz: Originally known as “scarlet quartz”, this stone is found in only a few mines around the world. The formation of Strawberry Quartz takes place in granitic pegatites. It contains microscopic hair-like or tabular red crystals of hematite. Legend has it Strawberry Quartz was brought by the god Eros to bring love to people on earth. It is believed Strawberry Quartz can be very soothing and has the ability to amplify intentions of love and appreciation.
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.
