ABOUT THE ITEM: -This beautiful hand-forged ring features a beautiful flashing faceted rainbow moonstone on a thin copper band. This ring was handmade using the lost art of electroforming. Electroforming is an organic process that creates a coat of copper on items using an electric current. The process can last from anywhere between 24 to 36 hours. Because of it's organic nature, each piece created in this process is unique and has beautiful imperfections and textures. Along with the protection from the wax, you should not shower or submerge the jewelry in water. Because your jewelry is made of copper, it will age over time but can become shiny again with a nice polish. :) All of the pieces offered at The Mountain Druidess are made with intention and feature fully charged crystals. To recharge your jewelry use the sun's and moon's rays because they are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. You can use this method to both clear and charge your crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight and/or moonlight. BENEFITS OF WEARING COPPER: -Copper has anti-inflammatory effects in the body, and may therefore have painkilling properties. One study showed that copper from a bracelet can be absorbed into the body, and it does seem that this can offer some relief from arthritic pain. (Jewelryinfoplace.com) FINISH Clear Coat- An enamel clear coat is placed on the ring. It will make it so that the copper does not touch your skin directly avoiding green coloration of your skin (which happens with certain body chemistry and is harmless and can washed off with soap and water). Please note that the benefits of wearing copper are negated with the clear coat. CRYSTAL MEANINGS: -Moonstone is said in crystal healing to help calm responses and stress, and avoid overreaction. It brings hope, enhances feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition, and psychic abilities. It is also said to bring strong energies of abundance to one's life. Moonstone is a stone of protection, especially during childbirth, pregnancy, and travel at sea. It is a stone of calm and relief from emotional stress. It is also associated with love of all kinds.
