The Iron Ring is a stainless still band with a high polish on the inside and brushed finish on the outside. Weigh: 11.2 gm | 0.39 oz Wide: 6.7 mm | 0.26 inches Thick: 3. 5 mm | 0.14 inches This ring is similar in design to my Fat Moon Ring. Basically the same features but the edges are flat giving it a distinct look. It was originally printed in still and further bench hand work was done. Working with still is difficult because it's such a hard metal to shape and alter. But the end results are durable and permanent. Still hardly ever scratches or change colors.
Metal Iron is the fourth most common element in Earth's crust (after oxygen, silicon, and aluminum), and the second most common metal (after aluminum), but because it reacts so readily with oxygen it's never mined in its pure form (though meteorites are occasionally discovered that contain samples of pure iron). Like aluminum, most iron "locked" inside Earth exists in the form of oxides (compounds of iron and oxygen). Iron oxides exist in seven main ores (raw, rocky minerals mined from Earth): Stainless steels
The steel you probably see most often is stainless steel—used in household cutlery, scissors, and medical instruments. Stainless steels contain a high proportion of chromium and nickel, are very resistant to corrosion and other chemical reactions, and are easy to clean, polish, and sterilize. They're corrosion-proof because the chromium atoms react with oxygen in the air to form a kind of protective outer skin that stops oxygen and water from attacking the vulnerable iron atoms inside.
