# Does the green color represents existence of Copper in it [duplicate]

World is full of green, because of plants. Does it really signifies existence of Copper, in particularly by leafs.

I well understood that Prolific Tamarind Colored Salt has base element Copper. More usage of Tamarind makes us dump as per Siddhas in India.

Would like to know specifically that green color means existence of Copper. Is that completely true. Or by Alkali elements it might be faulty in some situation.

• Azurite is a copper mineral and it is blue. Metallic copper is reddish. Cuprite is a copper mineral and it is red. So there are a lot of copper minerals that are not green. – MaxW Jan 24 '17 at 9:15
• No, there are plenty of compounds, even metal complexes, which are green without containing copper – Greg Mar 13 '17 at 23:10
