Finding Words that Start with the Letter N

in hive-174578 •  3 months ago 

Hello, awesome STEEMIT, alphabet hunters, and friends!

It is Thursday and the start of a new alphabet hunting week hosted @barbara-orenya. It is an absolutely fun challenge to do, and this time it is #alphabethunt Letter N.

Let us do this!

1️⃣ Nugget

A nugget is a small lump of gold or other precious metal without definite shape that is found ready-formed in the earth. These natural gold nuggets are true -one-of -a -kind - masterpieces from the earth's natural elements.

The other one thing that most commonly come in nugget form are fried chicken nuggets.

And I know that McDonald's fried chicken nuggets are popular world wide. I personally prefer to make my own chicken nuggets.

My favorite fried chicken nuggets are the ones I make from scratch using a Korean recipe, and it always comes out crispy and cruchy.

2️⃣ Nickel (coin)

A nickel is the slang name for a coin from America or Canada, equivalent to one twentieth of a dollar, or five cents.

A nickel is a five-cent coin struck by the United States Mint, composed of 75% copper and 25% nickel, the piece has been issued since 1866.

The Buffalo Nickel (left photo) is one of the most highly-regarded coin designs in American history.

The nickels in my stack that is in the photo below are special, not for their design, but because these are SILVER NICKELS. and are known as "War Nickels".

World War II prompted the rationing of many commodities in the United States. Nickel was highly valued for use in armor plating, and Congress ordered the removal of this metal from the five-cent piece, effective October 8, 1942. From that date, and lasting through the end of 1945, five-cent pieces bore the regular design but were minted from an alloy of 35% silver, 56% copper, 9% manganese. It was anticipated that these emergency coins would be withdrawn from circulation after the war, so a prominent distinguishing feature was added. Coins from all three mints bore very large mintmarks above the dome of Monticello, and the letter 'P' was used as a mintmark for the first time on a U. S. coin.


3️⃣ Nib

A nib is the pointed end part of a pen, which distributes the ink on the writing surface to write or draw with.

According to Mathur et al., "the modern fountain pen nib may be traced back to the original gold nib which had a tiny fragment of ruby attached to form the wear-point." Following the discovery of the platinum group of metals which include ruthenium, osmium and iridium, "a small quantity of iridium was isolated and used on the iridium-tipped gold dip pen nibs of the 1830s". Today, nibs are usually made of stainless steel or gold alloys, with the most popular gold content being 14 carat (58⅓%) and 18 carat (75%).


4️⃣ Necklace

A necklace is a pretty piece of jewelry that is worn around the neck. Necklaces are usually made of chain, or a string threaded with beads. Sometimes a pretty pendant is hung from the necklace.

The necklace pendants that I show here are either 24K gold or 99.9% fine silver. [I refer to these as my "wearable" stack!]


5️⃣ Narrow

A gap between two things is narrow if the two things are quite close together and there is not a lot of room between them. The opposite of narrow is wide.

I took these photos last year while on my way to the Mercati di Rialto, Venice, Italy. The street and canal in these photos are narrow.

6️⃣ Nail varnish

Nail varnish, often called nail polish, is a kind of special paint that you put on your fingernails or toenails to make them look pretty. I like my nails painted most of the time. My favorite colors are in the shade of pink.

There you have it, my friends! My selection of SIX words starting with the letter N for this week's #alphabethunt.
