What’s so special about copper?
It’sOligodynamic, which means it naturally kills germs on contact.
We each have about 2mg of copper in our body, without which we could not survive.
It’s dense - between lead and steel in density
Along with gold, the only non-greyish pure metal
Takes on its own unique hue over time and can be “reset” to brilliancy with baking soda and water (or salt and vinegar).
About the Oligodynamic Effect
Pure copper prevents growth and even kills bacteria, molds, spores, fungi, viruses and other organisms. The exact cause is unknown, but it's likely that the ions denature the protein of the cells by binding to reactive groups (precipitating and inactivating them). Copper has the strongest known effect of pure metals.
One study showed that a copper vessel filled with E. Coli and Salmonella killed the bacteria in less than half the time vs. silver and brass. Many hospitals are now using pure copper on everything from hospital beds to doorknobs in order to fight "superbugs".
