2. Source & History

All metals are silvery in colour except gold and copper. Together with silver they are referred to as the coinage metals, because they are relatively valuable, corrosion-free and pretty, which makes them excellent for making coins.

Although Copper got its name from the island of Cyprus which was the source of much of the Roman world's supply it was one of the earliest metals known to humans dating back to prehistoric times when chunks of it could be found lying around on the earths surface. As long ago as 7000 years copper was mined and used in the Tigris-Euphrates valley (modern Iraq).

Copper was the first metal to be made into an alloy when it was fashioned together with tin into bronze. Archaeologists broadly divide human history into three periods; the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and thirdly the Iron Age. During the Bronze Age, both bronze and pure copper were used for making tools and weapons.

Today by far its most important use is in electrical wiring where its unique characteristics can be fully exploited as an excellent conductor of electricity with very slow corrosion and extreme ductilability. Additionally it is an excellent conductor of heat also which lends itself to cooking utensil manufacture by providing an even temperature across the surface of the pan without hotspots. Finally its corrosion resistant nature is what makes it popular for plumbing and heating applications.

Triturations are made from the powdered material

3. Mentals & Generals

Emotionally unstable. Moods extreme and bipolar in nature. Variable, changeable, can fly off the handle at the least provocation, sullenness contrasts with loquaciousness, an urge to scream, shout and act wildly contrasts with lying still on the bed rigid like dead, an urge for violence to hurt and bite contrasts with a desire to run away and escape. 
 
Face may have white patches. There is involuntary limb jerking. In the case of cramps and epilectic like convulsions (of which the onset and cessation are abrupt) a bluish skin colour ensues. There may be exhaustion and prostration as a result of these exertions accompanied by loss of sleep.

8. Constitutional Prescribing

This remedy exhibits an affinity for both Nebel's Carbonic and Fluoric Constitutions. The hyperexcitability and incoordination characteristics allign with the Fluoric state whilst those of being supine, exhausted and escapist lacking in grit and determination represent more those of the Carbonic.

As always it is the patient picture that is important here especially the mental & general manifestations that are the key determinants for its Constitutional use.

High potency Constitutional prescription may be used as background together with a concurrent lower potency symptomatic remedy administered according to the Law of Similars.
