Copper is part of nearly all coinage metals. In compounds copper usually has valence 1 (cuprous) or 2 (cupric). Cuprous compounds include cuprous oxide, a red pigment and a fungicide; cuprous chloride, a catalyst for certain organic reactions; and cuprous sulfide, with a variety of uses. Cupric compounds include cupric oxide, a pigment, decolorizing agent and catalyst; cupric chloride, a catalyst, wood preservative, mordant, disinfectant, feed additive and pigment; and cupric sulfate, a pesticide, germicide, feed additive and soil additive. Copper is a necessary trace element in the human diet and essential to plant growth; in blue-blooded mollusks and crustaceans it plays the same role in hemocyanin as iron does in hemoglobin.; Crystalline copper from Michigan; By courtesy of Ted Boente Collection; photograph, John H.

Metallurgy dawned in Egypt as copper was cast to shape in molds (c. 4000 BC), was reduced to metal from ores with fire and charcoal and was intentionally alloyed with tin as bronze (c. 3500 BC).
