Copper

Harmonic Mineral

Copper’s history, legend and lore is long and varied. Its use by the human race dates back more than 10,000 years with a great many applications.  It is in fact said to be the first metal of humanity, showing up in Egyptian and Sumerian metallurgy back to 3900 BC.

Although the Egyptians were among the first human cultures to utilize Copper, they were also the first to develop Tin and Bronze.  It was the Egyptians that ushered in the Bronze Age in human history. Early in it’s discovery archaeologists found common cooking utensils and pots. By 2500 BC, it was found in jewelry, crowns and headdresses.  From there it was found to be used in Asia, Pre-Columbian Americans, and specifically in Christianity.

Copper Scientific Properties


copper02Mohs Hardness of 2.5 with a cubic mineral structure.

Copper is a metal mineral with a reddish coloring and a high electrical and thermal conductivity, which is nearly indispensable throughout history.

Copper occupies the same family of the periodic table as the metals silver and gold. All have a very high thermal and electrical conductivity as well as being quite malleable. Silver being the only other pure metal to have a higher electrical conductivity than Copper.

When Copper has been liquified, a pure Copper surface presents more greenish without ambient light, also a characteristic shared with gold.  It’s characteristic color is due to the reflection of red and orange light while other lights in the spectrum are absorbed.

Copper is an essential nutrient to all plants and animals. In humans (and animals), it is actually found in the bloodstream. Concurrently though, in sufficient amounts, Copper can be poisonous and even fatal to many organisms.

 

Copper Mystical Properties

Copper Bead Cap

As Copper is a conductor of heat and electricity, it is also considered a conductor of one’s spiritual energy, moving it back and forth between people, auras, crystals, and the spirit world. Said to be able to amplify one’s thoughts, sending and receiving psychic communication.

Also said to combat laziness and lethargy, passivity as well as non-acceptance of oneself.  It may stimulate optimism, initiative, independence and diplomacy. It will assist in offering the understanding that it is necessary to release all of the restrictions that one has installed within the self, while in the search for love, or the seeking of one’s believed life. It provides a harmonic connection between the physical and astral bodies while aligning the subtle bodies as well.

Said to be the bestower of good and the bringer of luck, Copper is said to especially bring positive energy in the recovery of property or possessions when lost or fallen into the wrong hands.

Copper is said to attract money. And although pennies are no longer crafted of copper, those produced in earlier years have been placed in and about one’s kitchen to draw wealth to the household.

Said to help cleanse wounds as well as fighting  bacterial infection, as well as arthritis, rheumatism, and to simulate the metabolic functions of the body.  Helpful with the alleviation of cramp like symptoms, promoting the proper functioning of the glands, and to prevent the daily wear and tear of the joints.

Emotionally, Copper is said to stimulate the flow of psychic energies resulting an a more vitalized being with amplified thoughts and emotions, freeing the bearer of mental and emotional burdens, boosting communication skills, and increasing self-esteem.

Long used to stimulate healing of all types, it is said to be linked to Copper’s ability to balance the body’s polarities, as well as the flow of projective and receptive energies.  Pure copper is often worn to prevent illness, motion sickness and any dis-ease due to unbalance.
