Cooper 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.
Historically, pearls were considered to be a symbol of purity, innocence and faith. They were worn throughout the history. The pearl neckless of the Persian queen Achaemenid is still on display at the Louvre and the pearl jewelry of the Queen of Sheba is legendary. Methaphysicians believe that pearls, if worn, are able to clear the mind and give a spiritual guidance.
