History of Copper
Copper could  quite  possibly  have  been  the first  metal  put  into  use  by  our ancestors. discovered in 8000 BC, its ability to be  shaped  and deliberately  detailed  seemed to have medal  it a "precious metal" almost  instantaneously. Besides the countless practical uses, copper was widely sought after for the  creation of ornamental  pieces and can be traced to the first coin currencies of the world.

Copper has been linked to the most amazing civilizations the world has known. Caesar and Augusta, both utilized  this metal  in their  Roman money system. We  find gifts to  gods in Egyptian tombs made of gold, silver, and yes copper. In  fact, in their hieroglyphics writings copper shared the same symbol with that meaning "eternal life".
