This mineral induces indulgence in deep emotive sensation, holds soothing qualities and can assist with boundaries on empathetic feelings - where those Cancer signs can fall deeply.

Copper is an ancient metal and naturally occurring, essential mineral in our bodies. Wearing it directly on the skin allows for beneficial assimilation. It also holds antibacterial properties, killing microbes on contact.
As it ages, copper naturally oxidises and will become darker in colour. If your piece darkens and you wish to brighten the metal again, try buffing with a jewellers cloth or lemon peel dipped in fine sea salt as a natural alternative. Be sure to rinse and dry well. I would advise against wearing your piece for bathing, swimming etc. This applies only to copper plated items.
If you find your piece is leaving 'greening' on your skin, do not worry, this is a natural reaction to the oils in our skin. Regularly cleaning your piece may reduce this. You can seal the copper with a clear lacquer/nail polish or jewellers wax if you would like to slow down this reaction.
Love your piece and it will love you in return.
