Copper Gallery

Introduction

Copper was first discovered by humans around 6000 B.C., and has since been used in countless ways to help improve our quality of life — as a weapon, as a tool for hunting and building, as mirrors and bells used in religious ceremonies.

Even in this age of high-tech and information, copper is used in a broad range of products from electric and telecommunications equipment to ultramodern semiconductors.

One of the objectives of this Copper Gallery is to review the truths and falsehoods surrounding copper in order to better examine its relationship with our lives.
