    It's not anodised.
    What you see as gold is actually an oxide layer formed on the stainless steel surface ,
    from heating.Unfortunately it gets wiped off quite easily.

    Actually, it's not anodized, just well loved (used). The lighting in my pictures this time was not the best, and the shadow makes it appear gold.

    Can be used with or without a condenser .
    Simple cap-length ,polished mouthpiece end and the rest of the stem is "sandstone " textured.

    Like @nickdanger , I have had my previous SDS stems for a few weeks now. For some reason I was unable to up-load pics to Imgur. Now it suddenly works again. Go figure.

    Anyway, here is a pic of my stems.

    The beautiful blue one with the bark design is a 62mm niobium stem. It is the first one made by @stardustsailor and was a gift that I will treasure forever. It is stunningly beautiful and I feel blessed to have it. I promise to take good care of it.

    The hammered stem is a custom 79mm titanium stem that has been anodized twice to achieve a two-tone effect. It is a coppery pink/blue color. It also has a stylized mouthpiece which has a lovely curve to it. I love it and have been using it constantly.

    Don't hesitate if you're on the fence. @stardustsailor makes beautiful custom stems and is a joy to work with! Thank you!!! You are a true artist!

    One of these days I'll be buying one of the custom stems. They are so beautiful in the pics it's so hard to even settle on a design! If had the go ahead to buy one tonight, I'll tell you what: I wouldn't be able to decide on a stem design.
    I think even it comes time to buy one I'll just let him know the colors I like and the textures I like and to have creative freedom? I know I want it to be an XL, no question there. I love love love the blended colors that stardust does. Stunning.

    These stems, along with the newest ti tip version with the deep grooves, is a really effective device. The texture makes the stem feel really nice in the hand and easy to spin. It's a beautifully crafted piece. Now after seeing the purple one, I may have to order one of those at some point. I may be saving money on material, but I'm sure it is being compensated for by purchasing all the VC accessories available lol!
