Copper metal is a conductor of electricity and heat tool. A good thermal and electrical conductivity is very high. Electric industry is the largest consumer of this element pure copper has a rather gentle and soft nature. So nice to use as a thermal conductor, a conductor of electricity, building materials, and various metal alloy constituents. 

Copper is also used for various purposes household appliances, to the biomedical component. Copper can also be combined with other metals to form alloys such as bronze. Iron alloys using copper as brass and bronze are very important All the coins in the U.S. and metals containing copper weapons.

Copper has widespread uses as agricultural poison and as algisida in water purification. Copper compounds such as Fehling solution is widely used in analytical chemistry tests for sugar. But we must also be careful of the nature of this toxic metal. This can occur when copper accumulate in the body due to the use of copper cookware. Elements Cu excess can damage the liver and cirrhosis spur.

Copper thinking about the symbol Cu and atomic number 29. In the Roman era, have a lot of copper in the mines and the most famous come from Cyprus, hence the origin of the name as сyprium metal, "metal of Cyprus", later shortened to сuprum. copper compounds commonly encountered as copper (II) salts, which often gives a blue or green color in mineral rocks at birth. 

Copper mineral often formed in the oxidized zone and in the form of sulfide ore. If within a stone wall there are a lot of lime carbonate in the ore gangue which is the downward migration of metal sulfates can be predicted is the original copper which is a product of a general change of copper sulphide ore or greenish blue colored. In the oxidized zone of sulfide deposits of mineral water is sulfuric acid and iron sulfate solution. 

Copper sulphate in solution reacts with the carbonate or carbonate in acid solution, Copper is sometimes found naturally, such as those found in minerals such as cuprite, malachite, azurite, chalcopyrite, and bornite. Copper ore deposits which are found in the U.S., Chile, Zambia, Zaire, Peru, and Canada. Copper ores that matters is sulfide, oxide-oxidanya, and carbonate. Of those, copper taken by smelting, leaching, and electrolysis.

Some Types Of Rock Mineral Copper

Cuprite Cu2O the which is the oxide of copper oxide and has approximately 88.8% copper content of ore

Chalcocite (Cu2S) has more seeds of copper metal That Is Less than about 79.8% of the heavy mineral elements of the stones.

Bornite Cu5FeS: copper ore contains approximately 63.3% of the weight of rock minerals
Azurite: Cu3 (CO3) 2 (OH) 2 has a Mineral Copper 55.3% by weight
Chrysocolla CuSiO3 (H2O) 2: Silicate of hydrated minerals by copper and copper ore contains about 45%
Dioptase CuSiO3 · H2O (also reported as CuSiO2 (OH) 2) :Has about 10% copper ore by weight
Covellite copper sulfide minerals with the formula Cus
