Keeping copper clean and dry, removing any oil or perspiration helps prevent oxidation. Although it can tarnish over time, copper resists tarnish better than many other jewelry metals (including sterling which turns black). When it does oxidize it takes on a soft brown, antiqued color as it darkens, a much sought after "vintage" look in jewelry. The tarnish on copper can be easily removed if you prefer a bright look. If you do prefer the bright look, keep your copper piece in an air tight bag or jewelry box to prevent tarnish when not wearing. In addition, Copper jewelry is often considered to have healing properties.
GOLDSTONE- The original manufacturing process for goldstone, a man made glass stone, was invented in seventeenth-century Venice by the Miotti family, which was granted an exclusive license by the Doge. The most common form of goldstone is reddish-brown, containing tiny crystals of metallic copper that require special conditions to form properly.
