Copper occurs as a natural mineral. Native copper occurs rarely as isometric cubic and octahedral crystals, but more typically as irregular masses and fracture fillings. It has a reddish, orangish, and/or brownish color on fresh surfaces, but typically is weathered and coated with a green tarnishof copper(II) carbonate  (also known as patinaor verdigris). Its specific gravity is 8.9 and its hardness is 2.5–3

Uses of Copper: The major applications of copper are in electrical wires, roofing and plumbing and industrial machinery. Copper is mostly used as a pure metal, but when a higher hardness is required it is combined with other elements to make an  alloy such as brass and bronze. It is also used in production of compounds for nutritional supplements and fungicides In agriculture.
