|Niobium... ART + TECHNOLOGY
Coloring Niobium is the fusion of Art and Technology... Niobium is a precious metal, like gold or silver. It is similar to Titanium. It is a pure element, there are no alloys in it. It is completely hypoallergenic, even for the most sensitive ears. The color is produced by a transparent, permanent layer which we create with electricity. Shocking! Color is the vibration of light. The colors of Niobium are the color of light, not dyes, that is why they are so vibrant and also why they don't fade or wear off.
Niobium was named after the mythological Greek goddess, Niobe, whose children were slain by another mythological character. The ancient Greeks believed that colored gemstones were Niobe's tears that she cried for her lost children.
