Sergio Lub Caduceus - Magnetic Bracelet - Made in USA!
Handmade in USA - unbeatable quality, gorgeous design. Has two permanent, north-pole, rare-earth magnets, approximately 2,000 gauss each. This style is available with a polished or brushed (matte) finish. 1/4" wide.
All of Sergio Lub's designs are handcrafted the old fashioned way, starting from solid metal wires. We use no plating, no casting and no machine stamping, all industrial techniques that save time, but compromise quality.
Our red metal is 99.99% Pure Copper, lead free, the purest available. Copper is one of the friendliest elements as it combines with many others. To find copper this pure in nature is more difficult than finding pure gold.
Our yellow metal is Jeweler's Brass, an alloy of 85% pure copper and 15% pure zinc, both essential minerals worn since prehistoric times by many non-related cultures around the world. Science has already proven that metals such as copper are absorbed through the skin, so besides their beauty, our bracelets can also be considered a time-release source of essential minerals.
The caduceus is the symbol of the healing arts. It traces down to the intertwined copper serpents Moses held over his tribe to protect them while crossing the desert. Lately it gained a yet deeper meaning as we discovered that this is the shape of the blueprints of life, the double coils of DNA.
