Cleansed and blessed for strength, health, and protection from the Old Norse Gods and the Viking Ancestors, by the North Sea at Tynemouth, Northumberland, England at the site of the invasion of Northumbria in 875 AD by Halfdene, first King of the Kingdom of Jorvik (York).
Copper and its alloys; bronze and brass, are natural materials with proven anti-microbial properties and although we can make no claims, some say anti-inflammatory effects useful for joint pain. Unless otherwise stated your piece will come coated in a tough invisible transparent lacquer to protect the finish however over time and depending on how its treated this coating may break down. As such, depending on your body chemistry and atmospheric conditions this piece may leave a harmless greenish deposit on the skin. This is easily washed off and can be minimized by keeping it clean and dry or lacquering/waxing it yourself.
