Because of its copper content, over time, bronze tarnishes and develops a green patina. This occurs when the copper reacts to moisture and air, oxidizing in the process. As bronze consists mainly of copper, wearing bronze jewelry can assist in alleviating copper deficiency. The skin is able to absorb the small amount of required copper through the metal (this is also why bronze jewelry turns skin green).
Bronze is also believed to aid in arthritis, rheumatism and joint pain, among others. However, if you have used a sealant (like painting the back with clear nail polish)on your bronze jewelry, your skin will not be able to interact with the mineral. This will prevent copper absorption.
