Known to ancient civilizations.

[Latin: cuprum = cyprus] French: cuivre
German: kupfer
Italian: rame
Spanish: cobre

Description: Copper is a reddish metal, malleable and ductile, with high electrical conductivity, making it ideal for electrical wiring, probably its most important commercial use. Copper is resistant to air and water, and is used as roofing material for public buildings, where it slowly weathers to an attractive green surface patina of copper carbonate. Historically copper has been important as one of the first worked metals, especially as the alloy bronze. It is still used in coins.
