  • We don't know the exact precise composition of the various foreign bronze metal alloys used to make this.
  • We aren't metallurgists and we cannot ever be 100% certain about anything.
  • Alloys are combinations of metals used for practical and artistic reasons such as durability.
  • Using 100% of any metal might make the product entirely too soft to endure.
  • 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.
  • For more information, please visit your nearest metallurgist, or geologist, or ask at your local library.
