I had a customer in the store last night with some fascinating
questions which for me, only inspired more questions.
She has some roman glass set into a ring and was told the glass is
very brittle and would flake off. I suggested adding a couple of
coats of reaction block over the glass as a protective layer…
would this actually work or would the chemical reactions between the
reaction block and the roman glass do more harm than good in the
Question #2: Is there a chemical reaction between tanzanite set in
silver Or platinum that could be detrimental to the tanzanite? I have
never heard of this before. To me it sounds as if someone was giving
my customer a line of horse hockey but I know the Orchid community
has more answers for this than I do.
Happy New Year to everyone,
