The great State of California, in their wisdom, has published a set
of ‘fact sheets’ under the Department of Toxic Substances Control
(DTSC) SPECIFICALLY for the jewelry industry.
They are available in English, Spanish, Armenian, and Vietnamese.
Copies may be requested at (916) 323-9482 or by fax at (916)
I am not sure whether they will, in fact, send to Orchid members who
are not residents of the Golden State, but they have also posted the
info. at htttp://www.dtsc.ca.gov/
Ther is some useful here, folks, for those of you who
wish to protect your health. David Barzilay, Lord of the Rings
