DOES COPPER GO GREEN?

When copper tarnishes, a beautiful green patina covers the piece.

Pure Copper Rings and bracelets: OK get ready for more green science. If you wear copper rings or bracelets that sometimes they or the skin of its wearer can turn green. This is know as copper chelates.

Chelates occurs when the metal interacts with sweat. The chelates assimilate to the body and are absorbed. This lets the wearers see proof that the copper is working with their body.

Green colouring on the skin comes off with mild soap and water.  polishing copper jewellery is as easy as finding an acidic item in the kitchen.
