What is the difference between the plain copper tools and the gold and silver plated versions?
The Light-Life ® Tools are all (except for the sterling silver tools) crafted out of copper, then they are either plated with silver and/or 24K gold. In addition, subtle audio frequencies known to produce healing effects and that have other beneficial qualities are embedded into all of the tools as they are being made.
Copper: Copper is a metal that has, according to Slim, the ability to transmute cosmic energy into life force energy. Its natural tendency to oxidize with age gradually boosts its power.
Copper Plated with Precious Metals: The gold-plated Light-Life® Tools begin with copper, are coated with a layer of silver and a layer of 24K gold. The 24K gold plating adds a higher frequency due to the structure of its atom in the crystal as it is applied onto the tools.
The silver-plated Light-Life® Tools begin with copper, are coated alternately with a layer of silver then a layer of 24K gold, building up to a total of nine ending with silver. All of the Harmonizers and pendants have eight alternating layers when the outside layer is 24K gold, and nine layers when the outside layer is silver. The reason for the multi-layering is that it creates a thermocouple effect, generating a small voltage to be converted instantly to an electric current (measured in amperage) to increase the tools energy field.
Beads: According to inventor Nikola Tesla, spheres are amplifiers, and therefore Slim decided to add beads to some of the tools to amplify their beneficial effects. The more beads a tool features, the stronger its effects. Tools with beads have a stronger, denser field-the beads essentially provide the rings with "more horsepower." (NOTE: Light-Life® Rings without beads are used mainly in outdoor applications, over irrigation systems, over smart meters, and also to sit on during long hours of travel to reduce fatigue and stiffness).
Heavy Gauge Copper: For the Light-Life® Heavy Tools, no silver or gold beads are required because the heavy gauge copper creates a stronger energy tensor field itself, which enhances the healing effect.
Sterling Silver: Silver is a superior electrical conductor, handling greater voltages and currents in electric circuitry. The sterling silver tools seem to work at a slightly different subtle level and appear to operate more smoothly and more quickly, due to a finer, higher frequency. If you've never worked with Light-Life® Tools, "smoother and quicker" may not mean anything to you - but those who have worked with the tools for any length of time seem to prefer the sterling silver tools to the copper ones.
Sterling Silver Plated with 24K Gold (by request): Just as it does with the copper, 24K gold plating adds a higher frequency due to the structure of the 24K gold atom in the crystal as it is applied onto the tools.
