I have many colors

I'm a transformation of another thing

I can be different things, if shaped properly

I can hurt you

I used to be strong, but now I'm thin and fragile

I usually don't come alone

I'm here for a really long time

I can be of use alone or with other things

There is no age limit to use me

I come with a price, but I was born free.

What am I?

EDIT 1: Here is another line to help you figure out the answer, if you need:

If I die correctly, I can become me again

You could be

Paper

I have many colors

Paper though often white can have many other colours

I'm a transformation of another thing

Commonly made from wood pulp

I can be different things, if shaped properly

Can be e.g. notepaper or rolls of wrapping pepper

I can hurt you

Paper cut

I used to be strong, but now I'm thin and fragile

Used to be a tree and now a sheet of paper

I usually don't come alone

Often in pages of a book

I'm here for a really long time

Paper last for centuries

I can be of use alone or with other things

Paper aeroplanes or with pens for writing paper

There is no age limit to use me

From babies using tissue to centenarians writing

Paper costs but comes from trees

With a stick. or may be some time with drinks.

I'm here for a really long time

Reference to natural ice or may be the ice age.

I can be of use alone or with other things

There is no age limit to use me

Definitely no age limit

If bought from store, we have to pay. But ice is made by freezing (when the temperature goes down) which is free.

If ice melt to water, it can be frozen back to ice again.

What am I?
