“Ditch your plans – spontaneity deserves its place!”

A colourful note:  the first recorded use of copper as a colour term in English was in 1594, and it is obvious that the light reddish brown colour got its name for its resemblance to the metal.

The metal’s name came from the latin  cyprium meaning “Cyprus”, where so much of it was mined in antiquity (Cypriots first worked copper in the fourth millennium B.C); the term was simplified to cuprum and then eventually anglicized as copper.

  1. No matter how Crayola calls a colour, it always [ALWAYS] looks orangey-pinkish to me. I bet even black [PITCHblack] would only be another variant. The coppers in my purse would beg to differ.
