Copper with the symbol Cu.

It is a ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity.

Pure copper is soft and malleable; a freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color.

It is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, a building material, and a constituent of various metal alloys.

The metal and its alloys have been used for thousands of years.

In the Roman era, copper was principally mined on Cyprus, hence the origin of the name of the metal as сyprium (metal of Cyprus), later shortened to сuprum.

Its compounds are commonly encountered as copper salts, which often impart blue or green colors to minerals such as turquoise and have been widely used historically as pigments.

Architectural structures built with copper corrode to give green verdigris or patina.

Decorative art prominently features copper, both by itself and as part of pigments.

The low hardness of copper partly explains its high electrical and thus also high thermal conductivity, which are the second highest among pure metals at room temperature.

This is because the resistivity to electron transport in metals at room temperature mostly originates from scattering of electrons on thermal vibrations of the lattice, which are relatively weak for a soft metal.

In Greece, copper was known by the name chalkos (χαλκός).

It was an important resource for the Romans, Greeks and other ancient peoples.

In Roman times, it was known as aes Cyprium, aes being the generic Latin term for copper alloys and Cyprium from Cyprus, where much copper was mined.

The phrase was simplified to cuprum, hence the English copper.

Aphrodite and Venus represented copper in mythology and alchemy, due to its lustrous beauty, its ancient use in producing mirrors, and its association with Cyprus, which was sacred to the goddess.

The seven heavenly bodies known to the ancients were associated with the seven metals known in antiquity, and Venus was assigned to copper

The major applications of copper are in electrical wires, roofing and plumbing and industrial machinery.

Copper is mostly used as a metal, but when a higher hardness is required it is combined with other elements to make an alloy such as brass and bronze.
