Interesting Facts About Copper
Copper is well-known for its warm lustre and stunning orange shade. Thanks to its soft and malleable nature, it has been used for many purposes over the years, and because it is an excellent conductor of both heat and electricity it can be found being used for many applications.
Copper’s history dates back thousands of years, with some of the earliest copper artefacts dating back to 9000 BC. Both tools and decorative items were made from this alloy, with both pendants and axe heads having been discovered from ancient times.
The ancient Romans were known for their use of copper, and even had a goddess representing the metal. Much of their copper was mined on the island of Cyprus and was used in the manufacture of bronze as well as in coinage. Copper was also known for its use by medical practitioners in ancient India and Egypt, having been used to produce surgical instruments and to sterilize wounds.
For centuries, copper has been a major component in artworks, including the Statue of Liberty. It was also traditionally used in shipbuilding and most recently in electrical wiring. Thanks to its ability to resist corrosion and weather-damage, it has long been used for architectural purposes, and can be recognized by its distinctive green patina.
