Copper has been used by humans for more than 13,000 years. It was a highly prized metal in ancient Egypt and it indicated wealth and status for the person that possessed it. It was used in jewelry and during spiritual and religious ceremonies. Historically, copper was considered as a grounding metal for human body and spirit and was believed to have protective capacity and was used for talismans and totems.
Agate was first found at the Achetes River in Sicily and that's where its name comes from. It has been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people, and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon. Metaphysically, agate is believed to be excellent for balancing emotional, physical and intellectual energy, and in harmonizing yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe. Agate is used by metaphysicians to stabilize the aura and to eliminate and transform negative energies.
Aventurine stone has been utilized by humans for over two and a half million years. Tools made with aventurine rocks were found in the Omo Valley in Ethiopia and jewelry made with green aventurine was also worn in ancient Tibet. Green Aventurine is known as the “Stone of Opportunity,” thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth, or for increasing favor in competitions or games of chance. It is believed to be activating the heart chakra opening it for new love. Green aventurine meaning in Feng Shui is wood energy, an energy for new beginnings, expansion, good health, growth and nourishment.
