Rhodium plating is a metal deposition process used to coat materials with a decorative and protective layer of rhodium. Rhodium is a noble metal that imparts an extremely bright and hard wearing finish when applied as plating. When applied as a thin plate, it affords a durable finish of exceptional brightness. Rhodium finishes can greatly enhance the appearance and longevity of any metal to which they are applied.
The turtle symbolism is characterised by the association with the Earth and earth symbols of grounded-ness and patience: Symbol of the world, of the Earth. Ability to stay grounded, even in moments of disturbances and chaos. Slowing down, pacing yourself. Determination, persistence. Emotional strength and understanding. Ancient wisdom. The turtle is also linked to the spirit of the water and the fluid nature of emotions.
