Wire-wrapped Copper Artifact Pendant Necklace With Turquoise Beads

$275.00

I bought this piece of copper from a Michigan miner in Tuscon this year, who told me it was an artifact, in that it cannot be created again. It was formed drop by drop in the Native American Reservation Mine, when they were pouring acid down into the mines to make it easier for the miners to get the copper out of the earth. You can no longer pour acid in the mines, therefore the formations will never happen again.

To me this piece looks like a little Buddha, or maybe even a little Alien from outer space. Use your imagination and tell me what it looks like to you! :) I carefully wrapped it so as not to detract from the piece itself. And trimmed it with 3 tiny turquoise colored beads. It is a most unusual piece to say the least. It hangs from a copper plated chain.

The pendant, including the bail is 2.9" x 1.2". The chain is 24" long and can be adjusted down from that. It has a copper lobster clasp.

If you have a penchant for the unusual, they don't come much more unusual than this piece. It shouts out to be examined on every side. And it begs to be seen.

Science and Myth

Any stone set in copper or used with copper with have an enhanced energy field. Copper even enhances the energy of silver and gold. There are some stones that are very powerful when used with copper. These stones are:

Azurite
Chrysocolla
Malachite
Turquoise

Copper is a healing metal
Copper has long been used as a healing metal, especially for arthritis and rheumatism. Copper has been used with blood and metabolism disorders. Copper acts as a conductor when worn on the body. Copper will help the healing effect of any stone when both touch the body.

Whether the effects of stones and crystals such as this are real or merely a placebo effect is unknown. All we know for certain is that the use of gemstones in healing goes back centuries. And we know that modern science has discovered some surprising applications for the unique properties of certain crystals as all stones and crystals are made up of the same things that make up our bodies!
