Before colonization, Africans referred to copper as red gold. For many Central and South African countries, red gold is used for trade in the creation of symbols of status and kingship, jewelry, and used in rituals.
Red gold is humanity's first metal and is crucial to modern-day civilization. It is widely recognized for its healing powers, both physically and mentally. Physically, it is used for wound and skin disease treatment, anemia, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart disease. It provides necessary properties for improving blood circulation, increasing energy, mental agility, and body detoxification.
Spiritual warriors wear their red gold righteously due to its ability to conduct spiritual energy back and forth between individuals, crystals, auras, the mind, and spirit world. Red gold offers emotional healing, leaving individuals more vitalized with sharpened thoughts. Spiritual warriors also use red gold's powers for increased communication, channeling, cleansing, purification, increasing self-esteem and freeing mental burdens.
