Gemstone information:
Leopard Skin Jasper is a form of Orbicular Jasper and is believed by natural healers to have similar healing properties, helping with chronic health issues and offering a calming, protective energy.

Copper information:
Worn throughout history even by royalty, copper is believed to have certain health benefits, like arthritis relief. All my pieces are made with pure copper. Like all metals, in varying degrees, copper oxidizes in contact with the environment (air, sweat, chemicals...), that it to say, it gets darker and develops a patina. Can't be avoided, only slightly delayed by coating with different finishes (which, again, some people are sensitive to). On some people this patina rubs off as a green residue which can easily be washed off with soap and water. I, personally, like the nuances of copper as it 'ages', especially as it can quickly and easily revert to bright and polished with a little "Twinkle Copper Polish" or "Brasso Brass and Copper Polish" (check in Walmart). Or use salt with a few drops of lemon - rub with a soft cloth and rinse off very carefully (too much lemon will dull the copper permanently), dry completely.
