Copper prices rise and fall on a daily basis. To find out how much one ton of copper costs today, you should consult the commodity market charts. These can be found easily online. Currently, scrap copper can be bought for around $4.25 a pound, whereas copper metal wire can be purchased for around $4.30 a pound. Although copper prices always fluctuate, it is better to buy copper sooner rather than later, as prices follow a rising trend. This is due to the fact less copper is available and there is more demand for it.

The rising price of copper has lead to criminal activity involving the theft of copper. Thieves will steal copper from various structures in the night, with the intention to sell it as scrap. This activity is dangerous to both the criminals and the general public. A number of people over the past decade have died because of copper theft activity. The police are now doing more to stop the theft of copper and catch the criminals responsible.

• Copper and its origin

Copper is a metal that has been used for thousands of years, both in pure and alloy form. The metal is believed to have first been widely mined in Cyprus, during the Roman era. For this reason, copper is also known as 'cyprium' - metal of Cyprus. This name was later shortened to cuprum. Copper salts have been widely used for years as pigments; the salts typically have a blue or green color. Evidence of this can be seen in old buildings that have been partially built using copper. The copper on these buildings has been corroded and covered with blue-green verdigris. Copper is still used widely today, in the formation of wires and other structures. It is also used in the production of art.
