Copper

Copper

The beautiful red-gold metal was associated with Venus in alchemy. Along with gold, silver, and tin, it’s one of the metals that has been worked with for about 9,000 years. Christopher Columbus used copper plates to protect his ship from being infested with algae. The Statue of Liberty in New York is made of about 80 tons of copper. Copper wires, 5,000 years old, were found in tombs in Egypt - and still in working order.
