Commencing ten thousand years ago with copper coins and ornaments, then carrying humanity into the Bronze age, this beautiful and practical metal has been with us every step of the way. Continuing through to the modern world, we see even the average motor car contains 30 kilograms of copper. Water, electricity, data, the stuff of life and progress are all conveyed through copper.
Copper is the only metal that is 100% recyclable. It can be melted and reformed, without losing any quality or strength. It does not corrode or rust. It will absolutely transform and change colour as it adapts to the elements of the environment, but it will never lose its quality or functionality.
Copper has anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. It is no surprise that for thousands of years, third world countries such as India and South America, have used copper as drinking vessels. In Ayurvedic medicine, drinking water that has been stored in copper, can have many health promoting benefits, to the heart, blood circulation, brain and skin.
Recent research into Copper shows that is a natural anti-oxidant for your skin. Copper can improve the skin’s condition by fighting free-radicals and helping your skin and joints produce collagen and elastin. Even the Egyptian Gods Cleopatra and Nefertiti used copper to stay youthful.
