  • The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States. It was first released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. It is struck only in the one-troy ounce size which has a nominal face value of one dollar and is guaranteed to contain one troy ounce of 99.
  • (Silver Eagles) modern 1-oz silver bullion coins.
  • (SILVER EAGLES) designation for the US Army Aviation Precision Demonstration Team, organized in May 1972 for public display of typical helicopter skillcraft, performed nationwide at air shows, patriotic events, and other fairs.
  • Enhance or perfect (something such as a reputation or a skill)
  • Polish (something, esp. metal) by rubbing
  • bright: made smooth and bright by or as if by rubbing; reflecting a sheen or glow; "bright silver candlesticks"; "a burnished brass knocker"; "she brushed her hair until it fell in lustrous auburn waves"; "rows of shining glasses"; "shiny black patents"
  • (burnish) buff: polish and make shiny; "buff the wooden floors"; "buff my shoes"
  • (burnish) polish: the property of being smooth and shiny

Alex Dael is on the brink of achieving the extraordinary. It's the scientific breakthrough of a thousand lifetimes, but inside he feels empty. Success is tempered when there is no one to share it with. He believes that to live without love is to live in true poverty. When Alex finally meets a woman who is everything he desires, she's out of reach. Rather than face the constant reminder and a career that has peaked, he chooses to take a wild ride. Alex believes that because of us, the cosmos comes to know itself. This time it returns the favor.

In this greenware photo (see adjacent photo for fired vessels) the vase on the right has had applied terra sigillata made from OM-4 ball clay with the addition of the art pigment Caput Mortuum (Mars Violet) to supply the iron as Fe2O3 (hematite). The large particle size of the hematite, from 1 to 5 micrometers (microns) grain size, is responsible for the blue-red to purple color to violet-purple hue. Kate Helwig of the Canadian Conservation Institute and a well-known pioneer in iron pigment research, has done extensive work, as have others, on this relationship between iron colors in pigments and the particle size of the iron involved. In unfired work or when used as art pigment, Caput Mortuum derives a metallic luster associated with the hexagonal plate-like micaceous (non-crystalline) structure characteristic of the specular form of hematite used to make this pigment. Unfired, the burnished ware had quite a nice shine. Particles of size 0.1 to 0.2 microns and smaller appear bright red. To illustrate this I chose an art pigment derived from synthetic iron molecule (color code PG8) from a Terre Verte art pigment (vessel on the left in the photo). In this synthetic azomethine pigment a single Fe3+ ion is joined by counterion ligands (in this case NO3-) to carbon-containing organic molecular segments. They decompose and the ferric ions combine with oxygen during firing to leave us with very small particles of Fe2O3, red iron oxide (hematite): 2Fe3+ + 3O2- ---> Fe2O3 In its entirety the synthetic azomethine probably has a particle size between 0.5 to 0.1 micrometers – the Fe3+ ion itself has an effective ionic radius of 0.000068 micrometers and a Fe2O3 particle created from two of the Fe3+ ions will have a particle size of about 0.01 micrometers – or something very tiny for sure. Aggregation of the newly created hematite particles may occur during firing to some extent. Mixed with a little bit of terra sigillata made from OM-4 ball clay the Fe3+ ions in the organic metal-complex were well dispersed. The terra sigillata made from this chelated iron-green pigment fired to a lovely, smooth, uniform, bright orange-red.
