If you do a Google search for copper, you will find this great description on Wikipedia – is a chemical element with the symbol Cu (Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. But, take one look at copper and it’s so much more than Cu and 29.
Take a look at the copper directional spot light to the right or look at some other pictures of copper fixtures on our Facebook page and you are taken aback by how beautiful they look.
There are a few reasons why we use copper and although it’s beautiful, those reasons are not because of how stunning the metal looks out of the gate. We actually appreciate it more when it loses its shiny color and develops the patina of a metal that’s aged to perfection.
