Copper has anti-inflammatory abilities that help relieve pain and stiffness associated with arthritis.
Native Copper was highly valued by the Indigenous Peoples of the New World. Most of the copper came from rich deposits in the Great Lakes and the Appalachian Mountains. Copper artifacts of the South East Mound-builders Complex have been dated to as early as 1000 A.D.
The metal was prized for its warm red-brown color and ease of malleability both cold and hot in its native state. It was used for many things from adornment to tools, including: anklets, armbands, axes, bracelets, chisels, earrings, hooks, knives, leg bands, necklaces, nose-rings, spearheads, fetish items, and more. - written by Professor Jamie K.
