Can someone please tell me about Tibetan Silver. I'm buying some rings that are Tibetan silver but I don't know exactly what it is and does it turn green after a while?
Thanx for any help.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tibetan_silver it is an alloy made of copper, silver, and sometimes tin and or nickel. Copper is the metal that cause green discoloration for many when they wear it against the skin so I would have to say yes it is very likely to turn green after time.
Tibetan silver will tarnish like any other sterling. It is just a slightly different sterling to copper mix than American sterling or Bali sterling. But it will tarnish or oxidize black not green.
Thanks. I guess the best thing to do is alway stick with sterling silver. It is more pure.

I particularly want to know about Tibetan silver rings, if they will turn green? What's in them? I read zinc/alloy.
