Nickel and CopperIntroduction:Copper is derived from the Latin word cuprum, which means from the island of Cyprus. Copper has been put to use for at least 11,000 years according to archaeologists. Ancient people found copper in nuggets and masses on the surface of the Earth, adjacent to streams, in the walls of canyons (Lugaski, 1997, n.p.). Throughout the years copper has been used to make such things as pots, pans and even some crowns and headdresses in ancient times. The use of copper spread to Asia where cultures and religions, such as Buddhism and Hinduism, used copper in the creation of fantastic inlays, embossed facades on palaces and temples, and ceremonial vessels (Jewellery Supplier, 1999, n.p.). In recent times copper has been used to make armour, weapons, bells, and ornaments. Nickels name comes from the German word for the mineral niccolite
