A copper bracelet with 42 inset germanium stones. The length is 21 cm (8.27 inches).
Our urban lifestyle exposes the human body to harmful positive ions generated from mobile phones, computers, electronic and electrical equipment, chemicals, acid rain, and ultraviolet rays. The negative-charge ions from Germanium will help in blood purification and balancing the positive and negative ions within the body. This also achieves muscle relieving effects as well as reducing fatigue and tiredness.
The Germanium atom has thirty-two electrons with four of them constantly moving unsteadily along its outermost shell. These four electrons are negative-charge carriers. When approached by a foreign substance, one of these four electrons will be ejected out of its orbit once the temperature is above 32 degrees Celsius (normal body temp=37 degrees C). This famous semiconductor phenomenon is known in electronics as the ‘positive hole effect’. The remaining three electrons will seize an electron from other atoms in order to maintain balance. Once in contact with human skin, the negatively charged ions from the millions of Germanium atoms will attract the harmful positively charged ions from the body. This process is also known as the dehydrogenation effect where oxygen atoms combine with hydrogen ions which have accumulated in the body to remove them.
