Please store your jewelry in a cool, dry place, ideally in anti-tarnish pouches.
All jewelry will eventually tarnish, so 'Alohi Kai silver jewelry comes with a non-toxic coating to ward it off. After wearing, just clean with gentle soap and water, and dry with a soft cloth. After a while the coating may wear off; if it does we recommend a soft polishing cloth in addition to the soap and water.
And remember to care for your jewelry by keeping it away from harsh chemicals including chlorine, salt and beauty products. Also avoid knocking, scratching or otherwise damaging your jewelry while performing activities. Look after your jewelry and it will last generations!
ABOUT Sea Fan Hydroids
These tiny inhabitants of the dark and secret reef are uncommon and found on cavern ceilings and ledges, often in the dark. Only reaching around 3" in size, they occur in places such as North and West Pacific Ocean, Indonesia, the Red Sea and Hawaii.
Hydroids are closely related to corals, anemones and jellies, all belong to the Phylum Cnidaria. Hydrozoa is the most diverse group of cnidarians, containing about 3500 species, and they take many different forms. They have polyps which are usually found on the end of stems or along their branches, and often live together as a colony. Some species even produce a jelly-like swimming medusa (which are often confused with jellyfish) as a form of reproduction.
Like all cnidarians, hydroids sting their prey (as well as unsuspecting divers...another good reason not to touch anything underwater!) They employ a stinging capsule called a nematocyst to paralyse prey, then use tentacles located on the polyp to move prey to its mouth. Some larger hydroids prey on fish larvae and copepods, but these little hydroids likely feed on plankton.
