Our copper block is fundamentally a decorative block that oxidizes over time, resulting in a verdigris effect on the surface. It is possible to create a waxed version of it that will not rust over time. This block can also be manufactured back into copper ingots if it is not fully or partially oxidized or has not been created into the sliced variant of the block. Only a stone pickaxe or better can mine the copper block sold by Niko Steel and Engineering LLP in the United Kingdom. Without the pickaxe use, it is impossible to mine a block of copper because it drops nothing.
