The copper may change in patina to a darker color depending on your
body chemistry, but this feature enhances the look of the piece as time
goes by. Also, in wearing copper as in using the chain necklace for a
bracelet, you may see some green on your skin. This is a normal chemical
reaction which occurs when your body seeks to draw the copper out of
the bracelet into itself, for beneficial purposes, and will wash off.
