Brass is beautiful

A box full of brass is too pretty to walk past without taking a photo.
Ever wonder where brass gets its color from?

Brass is a metal composed primarily of copper and zinc - mostly copper. The color of brass varies from a dark reddish brown to a light silvery yellow depending on the amount of zinc present; the more zinc, the lighter the color.
