Copper, chemical symbol Cu, is a shiny, red-orange metal that has a wide range of applications.

Copper is soft, pliable, malleable, and conductive. It’s mainly used in electrical wiring, roofing, plumbing, and cooking utensils. Copper’s widespread usage began during the Copper Age, from 3500 to 2300 BCE. The metal was initially used exclusively in its pure state but was later used in the production of other metal alloys. Although it has similar properties to gold and silver, copper is significantly cheaper. The global copper supply is fueled by mining and recycling of copper products. When mined, copper is extracted from crushed ore and is furthered refined through smelting.
