JCUIN February Collection
Until recently, I'd never really considered copper, I didn't think I liked how it looked, it was difficult to photograph flatteringly, and there wasn't much in the way of availability.
Until a friend made me a necklace of copper and turquoise.
Copper positively influences the blood and blood circulation
in the body. Copper does not just protect the blood against disease but also
stimulates the hormones and vitamins that are transported through the blood.
Copper also strengthens the immune system, against fevers and infections. Next
to that Copper eases the pain of sciatica, pulled muscles, arthritis and
rheumatism. Copper strengthens the consciousness of its wearer and strengthens
the bonds of family. In magic Copper is used to attract love, it is the metal
associated with the Goddesses Aphrodite, Astarte and Ishtar. Copper is also
used in rituals for money and healing.
It is undisputed that the discovery and use of copper in alloys to make bronze is what fueled the revolutionary events of the Bronze Age. What is in question is the source of tens of thousands of tons that were used all across Europe and the Mediterranean. Some revisionist historians believe that this copper was mined primarily by the Minoans in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as much as 2200 BCE.
The Minoans of Crete built the city of Akrotiri on the island of Thera in the Agean Sea, which was destroyed by the Santorini volcano about 1600 BCE, leading many to speculate that it was the source of Plato's Atlantis.
The Minoans built the first paved roads, and developed the first written language, now known as Linear-A. In their time, the Minoans had the largest naval fleet in the known world, rivaling even the Egyptians in both trade and military force.
