Copper

Science & Origin of Copper

Copper is not a mineral but an element on the periodic table. It is a soft, malleable metal with high conductivity. Natural veins of Copper are found all over the world, and with high industrial uses, this element is particularly soft after. It was first reported by Pliny the Elder in 77 A.D. and named after the Greek word "kyprios" referring to its original discovery within Cyprus (an island country off the Middle East). Copper is a key component in other minerals such as Turquoise, Malachite, Shattuckite, and Covellite. Copper can be found all over the world with important deposits located in Mexico, Egypt, North & South America, the Congo, and South Africa.

Ancient Uses

One of the oldest medical texts known to man is the Edwin Smith Papyrus. This text was purchased by Edwin in 1862 and is estimated to be from the Egyptian civilization dating back to 2,600 B.C. This advanced medical journal provides detailed instructions for diagnostic, medical procedures, and aftercare. Within these Papyrus pages, Copper has been identified through petroglyphs as a leading tool in various aspects of the ancient medical field. Cooper was suggested as a use to sterilize wounds and drinking water. A green powder was created from a Copper-bearing mineral (Malachite) and used during various medical procedures. What is even more fascinating is that researchers believed that this text is a copy of an even OLDER medical writing! It makes you wonder how these societies were able to be so advanced so long ago.

Healing Benefits

Copper is one of the most used elements in our society. You’re most likely in a room with all sorts of copper components. Aside from plumbing, technological, and medical uses, this mineral has special healing effects. Wearing Copper on your body is believed to seep within your pores and help arthritis. In Finland, Copper miners were miraculously shielded from arthritic pain, a common medical issue found within local Finnish miners. Werner Hangarter, a German physician, was enamored by this phenomenon and studied the effects of Copper on the body. Werner and his team developed clinical trials showing positive results of Copper for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis along with neck and back problems.

Native Michigan Copper

The state of Michigan (United States) has extracted some of the largest quantities of Copper this world has ever seen. Nearly all of the Copper is mined in the upper peninsula and has commonly been named “Copper County”. Industrial copper mining started here in the mid-1800s and at one point, produced nearly 95% of America’s total Copper. Native Americans knew the true power of Copper and mined near Lake Superior from 5000 B.C. to 1200 B.C. These dates have been confirmed through shaped wooden logs within the pit, which is believed to have been used to structure the mines. It is estimated that 1.5 billion pounds of Copper were extracted during this period.

Meaning & Origin

As we have outlined above, Copper is a healer of not only one’s physical, but auric body as well. This healing element is used as a conductor within crystal grids, orgone pyramids, and your own personal magic. Copper enhances our entire emotional field and properly grounds the higher vibrations around us into a physical realm. It is capable of helping us manifest our truest desires, while bringing about universal knowledge. Copper’s special ability is its process of igniting our true inner potential and connecting it with our personal will. With both of these forces aligned, the shining light within us can burst through to bridge the gap between the spiritual and physical realms.

Try placing Copper on the chakra that feels unaligned and affected by malignant energy. The dampening of a major producer of energies within our bodies can alter our mood, emotions, and livelihood. We recommend doing a quick examination of the physical body before entering any meditation. See what it is that may feel off and use Copper as a way to mend the internal conflict.
