Mica Jewelry Care
Natural mica are sheet silicates that can be separated into flexible or brittle sheets. Tiny crystals of garnet, tourmaline, magnetite, hematite and other minerals can form between the sheets creating inclusions.
Earrings should be stored in their original box.
Care should be taken when handling.
Mica can scratch easily and can be damaged by rough handling or improper storage.
Storing the earrings with other jewelry or objects can damage the mica.
Water will damage the mica due to its absorbency.
Water trapped in between the sheets can cause them to split apart and flake off.
Jewelry should be last thing that is put on. Do not wear while applying hair spray, perfume, lotions or oils.
If the mica become damaged during proper wear and use, there is a fee to replace the mica.
