Copper is important in the history of people as it is one of the first metals ever mined and worked by human hands over 10,000 years ago. It was also a primary component of the first metal alloys. Gold and iron may have been used even earlier than copper, but we learned to smelt copper before iron. It is sacred to many of the love Goddesses. The ancient Romans called copper cyprium, as it was primarily mined in Cyprus, which also claims to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, Cypria being one of Her epithets. Later the name evolved to cuprum and this is where copper’s symbol Cu originated. It was also sacred to the Sun in Babylon as well as to indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest.
Many people believe that wearing a piece of copper jewelry on the affected part of the body will help rheumatism and arthritis. Any healing stone set in copper will have amplified affect. It is also said that copper aids in bringing emotions into balance and it is good for healing work, fertility spells, prosperity spells, and spells to attract love.
