A few random facts: One of the famous Dead Sea Scrolls found in Israel is made of copper instead of fragile animal skins. The scroll contains clues to a still undiscovered treasure. When Columbus sailed to America, his ships (Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria) had copper skins below the water line. The copper covering extended hull life and protected the ships against barnacles and other types of biofouling. Today, most sea-going vessels use a copper-based paint for protection.
Israel’s Timna Valley provided copper for the Pharaohs. Records stated that copper form Ancient Egypt was used to treat infections and clean water. The island of Cyprus(where it’s got its name) have supplied much needed copper for empires of the ancient Phoenicia, Greece, and Rome.
