The main function of the information room is to reveal copper’s history, locations, affinities, mysteries, and how copper and its ore was used for other purposes.

 

The story of copper begins when it was discovered, as it was used for tools, weapons, and pigments.  The broad use of copper has lead to some of the world’s most amazing mysteries; many of which remain unsolved to this day.

 

Myths have always surrounded copper, to include the mythical goddess Venus, born on the “island of Copper,” known today as Cyprus.  The glyph for copper, women, and Venus is the same, similar to that of iron, men, and Mars.  Arizona, known as the “Copper State,” is legendary as it is the largest producer of the metal in the United States.
