The Chalcolithic is a phase of the Bronze Age in which the addition of tin to copper to form bronze during smelting remained yet unknown by the metallurgists of the times.

Because it is characterized by the use of metals, the Copper Age is considered a part of the Bronze Age rather than the Stone Age.
