Copper is an element with the symbol Cu. In Michigan it was mined in antiquity by the Native American peoples of the Keweenaw Peninsula. In 1841 a “copper rush” started in the area after white American prospectors found the deposits. Most of the deposits were found as fissure veins, but occasionally masses that weighed tons were found as well. Today there are still open mining claims pulling copper out the earth in nearby sites. Copper is a very good conductor of electricity and heat. It is used extensively in wiring, plumbing and telecommunication industries. Because of Copper’s heat conductivity, cookware made of Copper heats up faster and holds the heat more evenly than cookware made of other materials. Copper has been scientifically shown to relieve arthritis and help with neck and back pain when worn on the body.
