ABOUT THE ITEM: -These beautiful handmade rings feature beautiful moss agates. This crystal got it's name from the iron oxide minerals that resemble moss. Moss Agate is a stone of wealth, attracting abundance in all forms. These rings were handmade using up-cycled pure copper for the setting and then electroformed to create a bezel for the crystals. Electroforming is an organic process that creates a coat of copper on items using an electric current. The process can last from anywhere between 24 to 48 hours. Because of it's organic nature, each piece created in this process is unique and has beautiful imperfections and textures. Along with the protection from the wax, you should not shower or submerge the jewelry in water. Because your jewelry is made of copper, it will age over time but can become shiny again with a nice polish. :) All of the pieces offered at The Mountain Druidess are made with intention and feature fully charged crystals. To recharge your jewelry use the sun's and moon's rays because they are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. You can use this method to both clear and charge your crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight and/or moonlight.
