It has a chemical composition of Cu, an isometric crystal system, and a hardness of 2½ - 3.
Chemically, it's associated with iron and silver.
Copper is a precious metal.
This metal is a great conductor of heat and electricity.
Brass and bronze are both important alloys of copper.
Because copper reacts readily with other substances, it can be formed in a variety of ways in the Earth's crust.
It is found in the oxidized zones, hydrothermal veins, cavities of basalt that have been in contact with hydrothermal solutions, and as pore fillings that replace conglomerates that have been in contact with hydrothermal solutions.
Copper has a medium melting point: 1981° F (1083° C).
Most of the world's copper is found in four locations: Andes region of Peru and Chile, he United States western basin, central Canada, and Zambia, Africa.
According to archaeological evidence, copper was discovered around 8000 BC.
Copper was one of the first metals to be worked into implements and be smelted from ores.
Copper is easily recycled because it's not magnetic.
This metal has many industrial usages such as building and construction, electric and electronic products, consumer goods, industrial machinery, and equipment (especially transportation).
The word originates from the Latin word cuprum or Greek "kyprios", Cyprus. The Island of Cyprus was the location of ancient copper mines.
