From 1870 to 1885, Leland was a smog-filled industrial town anchored by the Leland Lake Superior Iron Company. After the smelting industry failed because of large overhead costs and the lack of a good harbor in Leland, the remains of the industry, including heaps of slag, were dumped into the harbor. Slag is a byproduct of the smelting process: raw ore is heated, and the desired iron ore is separated from various natural impurities. When those impurities cool, the result is stone-like slag. Leland Blue, specifically, is the mix of blue glass with other chemicals, but this varying chemical medley can also cause the slag to appear purple, gray, or a shade of green. Today, people find this slag material on the shores of Leland’s beaches

To prevent your new sterling silver jewelry from tarnishing, wear it. The oils in your skin do a great job of preventing tarnish. You should also keep your sterling silver out of moist areas, such as your bathroom. Sterling silver doesn't like hot tubs, pools or sometimes the ocean. If your sterling silver becomes grey you can polish it with a silver polishing cloth.
The stones in your jewelry unfortunately are not indestructible. Though they are strong you'll want to try and prevent any hard blows to the face of the stone.
