Description

Shiny, reddish copper was the first metal manipulated by humans, and it remains an important metal in industry today. 

The oldest metal object found in the Middle East consists of copper; it was a tiny awl dating back as far as 5100 B.C. And the U.S. penny was originally made of pure copper (although, nowadays, it is 97.5% zinc with a thin copper skin).

Copper ranks as the third-most-consumed industrial metal in the world, after iron and aluminum, according to the U.S. Geological Survey(opens in new tab) (USGS). About three-quarters of that copper goes to make electrical wires, telecommunication cables and electronics. 

Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a pinkish-orange color.
