Copper is considered a mineral of energy and mental agility. In legend, copper is said to be the metal of the God Hermes, who facilitates that mental agility, and quick wit. Copper is an excellent conductor of energy, from electricity to the mystical subtle energies emanating from higher planes, etc. Thus, copper is said to enhance and transmit thoughts, even over long distances. Physically, copper is used in traditional folk remedy and crystal healing lore to bring in additional energies for all types of healing, treatment of arthritis, relieving pain of broken bones, sexual instability, and low energy.

Photography - I photograph outside in full sun for true color rendition. Occasionally clouds come over that make the color less than it really is. On rare occasions I supplement with a flash to highlight details. Lighting mineralscorrectly will bring out their best color. Halogen works the best. The hand or finger in the photo is to give you a comparision of size. We realize it is hard to tell the size of anmineral by the picture alone.
Computer monitors - We try very hard for accurate color rendition. However images look different in color depending on the computer moniter. I have even moved the laptop from living room (editing pictures) to office to upload and the glare from the windows changes the colors. If you are unhappy with the item, you may of course return it within 7 days for a courteous full refund.
Measurements - All are measured from the tip to across. This is the industry standard. Then we measured across in a X formation.
