About tourmalinated quartz: Tourmalinated Quartz is clear or milky Quartz with black Tourmaline needles. Once considered too opaque to be used as a gemstone, tourmalinated quartz, long considered an ornamental stone, has been used decoratively for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. The combination of deep black needles within translucent to opaque material -- each a unique pattern -- creates a perfect polarity of energies and represents a natural balance.
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.
