Like our kinds, there is an ancient, stellar origin to Copper, Gold, Silver, and Platinum. However, only Copper comes from the process of life. The other metals are formed once a star is dead. The earth’s large copper stores might account for the frequent sightings of UFOs in high productions countries like Peru and Chile. The properties of Copper make it a good conduit for energy and so it is used in computers, cell phones, and the technology for solar-power generation. One problem, however, is that Copper is finite.
