3.Mood ring colors
(1)Why Can Mood Rings Change Colors？
The mood ring refers to a ring of "emotional gems" containing thermochromic elements, which can change the color according to the temperature of the wearer's fingers. When the ambient temperature is relatively constant, the temperature of the finger is determined by the peripheral blood flow, and the peripheral blood flow is regulated by the autonomic nervous system. The mood ring contains liquid crystal, which can change the color of the gemstone according to the temperature change.
(2)The relationship between the mood ring colors and the body
Changes in our mood can cause certain chemicals in our body to be released into our bloodstream, which can cause various reactions. That's why our heart rate changes when we're happy. When we are sad, our energy tends to decrease. These changes will be captured by our gems. When we're anxious or scared, chemicals in our body send blood to our vital organs and muscles. This is to prepare our bodies for a "fight or flight" response. The temperature of our extremities tends to drop as blood is diverted to the internal organs. The temperature of the finger also changes, as does the color of the gemstone. Mood rings can't tell you exactly your emotional state, but the crystals are calibrated to have a pleasing blue or green color at a normal resting ambient temperature of 82F (28C) for the average person. As the surrounding body temperature rises, its response to passion and happiness, the crystal twists to reflect blue. When you're excited or nervous, blood moves away from the skin and flows more to the internal organs, cooling the fingers and causing the crystals to twist in the other direction to reflect more yellow. In cold weather, or if the ring is damaged, the stone will turn dark gray or black and become unresponsive.
