I don't want to be rude or anything, but I can't imagine being allergic
to nickel and/or cobalt. Can I ask you what happens if you come in
contact with nickel coins (such as the nickel)? Those really blue
glasses are made blue by cobalt also. I couldn't imagine having to check
everything for its ingredients before I touched it - I empathize with
you situation. I don't want to be rude, but just curious.
