Copper metal possesses a reddish lustrous appearance that turns green on exposure to moist air. It has no odor, is malleable, and is insoluble in Water at ambient conditions. It is an essential component of the natural ecosystem involving rocks, animals, plants, water, and volcanic dust/gases. It can be easily machined, extruded, or drawn into shapes and forms two series of salts, Cu(I) and Cu(II), with other compounds. On a commercial scale, 80% of its production is obtained by electrolysis of low-grade or poor Sulfide ores, which are usually treated by pyrometallurgical methods involving series of stages.
