Copper and Brass- The Magic Metals
If tradition is to believed, these metals have healing properties. Copper is allegedly a strong conductor of energy, and an aid for exhaustion. This makes sense as it is used for electrical wiring. Copper is also supposed to detoxify the body, drawing the toxins from your system through the skin where the copper is worn. These therapeutic properties are evidenced by oxidation, turning your skin green when the piece is not sealed. I have been told by countless customers, that it does indeed relieve arthritis pain. Not only does Brass have the same benefits as copper, but it is also said to assist in healing the skeletal structure, and is conducive to spiritual and mental healing, self-discipline, and strength. Recently it has been discovered that most germs cannot live for more than five minutes on copper versus 72+hours on stainless steel!
