🤍 Copper is notorious for both tarnishing and for turning green. The tarnish can be cleaned with a copper cleaner, or with lemon juice and salt. The green, Verdigris, happens with moisture contact, it is not toxic and will wash off of skin with soap and water, copper can be coated with clear metal lacquer to give a barrier.
