While relatively new to fine jewelry, tungsten was discovered more than two
hundred years ago.
Here is more information about tungsten and tungsten carbide.
Tungsten is an essential part of modern life, used in industry and homes around the world.
Description: Tungsten is a naturally occurring element.
It occurs in rocks and minerals combined with other chemicals, but never as a pure metal.
Elemental tungsten is a white to steel gray metal (depending on the purity) that can be used in pure form or mixed with other metals to make alloys.
Pure tungsten is a shiny white metal and, in its purest form, is quite malleable and can easily be processed.
Usually, however, it contains small amounts of carbon and oxygen, which give tungsten metal its considerable hardness.
