is achieved by the oxidization of sterling silver. This blackened state
will fade or scratch off over time but we will be happy to help teach
you how to re-oxidize your pieces if you are interested (it is a very
easy process). Additionally, please note that Black Sterling tends to
look darker in photograph than in person.
have been shown to be about 14.7 million years old. The most popular
explanation of their origin, according to Prof. Bouska, is that they
were formed during the impact of a large meteorite, or comet nuclei,
with the Earth’s surface. He explains the formation of tektites in
simplified terms: “An enormous body with a volume of several cubic
kilometers is racing towards the Earth. The uppermost layers of the
Earth’s surface are melted by the highly compressed hot air cushion in
front of the flying meteorite prior to its contact with the surface of
the Earth. At the moment of impact, there is a tremendous explosion
comparable with a multiple hydrogen bomb, the atmosphere is torn apart,
and tektites are formed in the vacuum bubble. The fusion process and the
throwing out of the tektite glass material occurs in a very short time
period prior to the actual impact of the meteorite or comet core. The
modeling of the formation of large impact craters has shown that the
column of hot ascending atmosphere can carry the tektite melt into the
upper parts of the atmosphere or even above the atmosphere.”
