There was the Copper Age

History classifies the Copper Age between 6000 BC and 4000 BC, defining it as a period of prehistory located between the Neolithic (New Stone Age) and the Bronze Age.

Copper was one of the first metals used by man. Although in a rudimentary way, the use of native copper, began the development of metallurgy.

The first civilizations molded the red metal thanks to the techniques of hammering or cold beating, acts preceded by the molding of ceramics, whose improvement served in metallurgical processes, thus beginning to understand them and make various alloys with other minerals, being the most the usual alloy with tin, which gave rise to bronze.
