    The first thing you can be sure of is that pure gold is the most stable and least reactive of all elements, and it will never turn your fingers green or black. 24K gold has a 99.9% pure gold content, so 24K gold will never turn your fingers green either. Unfortunately, for the durability of jewelry, jewelers usually add some base metals such as copper, zinc, nickel, palladium, and silver. Unlike gold. These base metals usually react easily to oxidation, nickel is usually the fastest to react and leave marks on your skin, followed by copper which reacts to produce copper green; and silver which darkens yellow gold and loses its luster.
    Gold turns your fingers green most likely for several reasons: first, the skin care products you use have harder metals than pure gold separating the base metals in gold; second, prolonged exposure to oxygen causes copper, nickel and silver to oxidize under the acceleration of sweat and heat; third, naturally acidic skin and heavy sweating can also cause copper to oxidize to produce copper oxide; Finally, if you forget to take off your ring when using shampoo or other chemicals containing sulfur, sulfur amino acids will immediately react with the alloys in gold and leave green and black marks on your skin.
