ABOUT THE ALLOY

  • This is made from a bronze metal alloy and is so marked; it is not 'bronze colored'.
  • We don't know the exact precise composition of the various foreign metals used to make these old foreign alloys.
  • We aren't metallurgists and we cannot ever be 100% certain about anything.
  • Magnets will stick to ferrous metals.
  • Magnets attract to ferrous metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, certain steels and other alloys.
  • Brass, aluminum, copper, and most stainless steels, however, are non ferrous, and magnets are not attracted to them.
  • Alloys are combinations of metals used for practical and artistic reasons such as durability.
  • Using 100% of any metal might make the product result entirely too soft to endure.
  • The term "sterling" refers to a specific amount of silver in an alloy.
  • The term "sterling" refers specifically to an alloy of silver that is 925 parts pure silver and 75 parts copper, thereby increasing the strength of the silver.
  • For more information, please visit your nearest metallurgist, or geologist, or ask at your local library.
