Copper is a chemical element with symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29.Itis a majormetal because of its high ductility, malleability, thermal and electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimates that every American born in 2008 will use 1,309 pounds of copper during their lifetime for necessities, lifestyles and health.
Copper health jewelry are more and more popular in whole world.
All MAAS Copper Jewelry use pure copper material (Cu>99.90%)

Features of Copper
lStrength:Copper is a weak metal with a tensile strength about half that of mild carbon steel. This explains why copper is easily formed by hand, and DIY many jewelry designs as you need.
lToughness: Copper may not be strong, but it is not easy to break due to its high toughness. This property comes in handy for copper ring and copper bangles applications
lDuctility:Copper is very ductile and also very malleable. The electrical and jewelry industries benefit from the ductility of copper.
lConductivity:Second only to silver, copper is not only an excellent conductor of electricity, but also of heat. As a result, copper serves well in applications such as cookware, where it quickly draws heat to the food inside
