This is a neat word. It refers to a diamond have many cuts (sides) in it. So, when a person has lots of things going on in his life we can say he is multi-faceted. He mi…ght be a doctor who plays golf, volunteers for the Red Cross, participates in long distance running, loves hunting & fishing, helps out with his church, plays a guitar, and many other things. He leads a multi-faceted lifestyle.
Gems are heat treated to enhance their colour. Some clear gems like topaz turn blue when heated. While others like citrine become more transparent. If a stone is unheated it i…s a natural stone.
What this means (likely from a Radiology report) is that the Cervical facet (the "tabs" of the vertebrae) at the C3/4 vertebrae/disk is degenerating, and at some point could c…ause a disk problem down the road. If you're not having any disk problems now, or pain in your left shoulder, arm or hand, then you're probably okay. It only really becomes a problem when it degenerates to the point where it can lead to herniation or other problems causing inflammation and pain. You'll know if it happens - the pain in your arm and shoulder will be unmistakable. You can go to the Spine Health site at the link below to read more about it.
Answer 1 Until an expert can improve this answer, I submit the following layman's opinion. Regarding gemstones, it means having many non-paralell surfaces cu…t or ground onto the stone. The purpose of the facets is to inhance the light reflectance of the stone.
Picture a tripod, with the body of the vertebra as one leg, and the facet joints as the other two legs. Looking down on the spine from above with the stomach in the front... T…he body of the vertebra is at 12 o'clock (noon) and the facet joints are at 5 & 7 o'clock [posterior (behind) & lateral (off to the side)] of the main vertebral body. Facet joints help stabilize the spine, and wear & tear over a long period of time will lead to the body strengthening these joints by depositing more bone to make them stronger. This is called arthritis. Nerves exit the spinal cord and travel between these facet joints; when there is a lot of bone build-up, the causes crowding in the area where the nerves exit the spine to travel down the body. This narrowing is called 'stenosis'. If there is enough 'stenosis' of this area the nerve exiting the spine in this area can have some pressure placed on it. Nerves are like the wiring in the house, except individual nerves fibers are bundled up together, like a lot of individual small wires within the main bundle. Each individual wire (nerve fiber) travels to one specific spot in the brain, traveling all the way from its origin in the body, through the spinal column (cord) to the brain. If this nerve fiber in affected ANYWHERE along its path, it will make the brain think pain is originating where the nerve fiber originated. So if a nerve bundle in "pinched" in the spine, the brain will get the signal that (let's say, assuming the nerve came from the foot) an area in the foot is hurting.
with a great amount of pressure and heat, such as in volcano's
Fancy words for arthritis of multi level of the spines.
Many gems are heated in order to improve their color or clarity.
Natural means ;ordinary daily things.For example,like my hair is natural, my legs are natural my ears are natural.
A gemstone can be a precious or semiprecious stone, a mineral crystal, or a mineraloid (such as amber) which can be used to fashion an object of adornment or beauty.
The most commonly used method of enhancing gemstone color is heating - examples are Tanzanite which comes out of the ground brown is heated and changes to blue. Same with sapp…hires and in some cases rubies. Emeralds are commonly soaked in resin or oil to hide the cracks in the stone, so is Turquoise. Pearls are often bleached or dyed to enhance color.
what does bilateral facet arthropathy mean
The term "Type II" when referring to gemstones indicates the quality. Type II gemstones have a little less clarity than Type I but it only slightly detracts from the beaut…y of a stone.
Manmade gemstones are generally cheaper than natural gemstones. They are cheaper because they are not as durable as natural gemstones.
they are treated differently depending on the weather?? and how to eliminate the color is very difficult depending on the material
In Ralph Waldo Emerson's Nature, Emerson first introduces the concept of "nature" in the first chapter. He sees nature as something that is always there, but not necessarily a…ccessible, just like the stars. The mind is open to the influence of natural things.
Natural gemstones start life as a rock or mineral which is then cut and polished to discover the beautiful coloured 'gem' inside. These natural gemstones are then usually made… into jewellery. The more common gemstones are Diamonds (white), Rubies (red), Sapphires (blue) and Emeralds (green) but there are lots of other including Hematite, Obsidian, Tiger-eye, Quartz and Amethyst.
