In these cases, changing to a more appropriate piece of jewelry made out of a non-reactive metal such as 316 LVM stainless steel, titanium, niobium or glass will alleviate the symptoms.
If you are wearing a porous material such as acrylic or plastic, bring appropriate jewelry made out of glass, stainless steel, titanium, niobium or PTFE to your doctor's appointment.
Jewelry must be used that is made of an appropriate metal such as 316 LVM stainless steel, titanium or niobium, and it must be the correct size and shape for your anatomy.
Stainless steel of 316 LVM or better, titanium, niobium and Pyrex are all appropriate materials for long term wear since they can be autoclaved and do not harbor bacteria.
Rose, who regarded niobium oxide as the element.
COLUMBIUM, or Niobium (symbol Cb or Nb, atomic weight 94), one of the metallic elements of the nitrogen group, first detected in 1801 by C. Hatchett in a specimen of columbite (niobite) from Massachusetts (Phil.
In 1809 he proved the elementary character of columbium (niobium) and titanium.
Rose detected two new elements in the columbites of the Bodenmais, which he named niobium and pelopium; dianium was discovered by W.
Blomstrand, and others, especially of Marignac, proved the identity of columbium, dianium and niobium, and that ilmenium was a mixture of columbium and tantalum.
Anodic polarization in potassium chloride solution renders molybdenum, niobium, ruthenium, tungsten, and vanadium passive (W.
