Silver and Brass
Silver has long been valued as a precious metal which was used in the old days as currency and trading means. Silver has a brilliant white metallic luster that can take a high polish. In the 19th century, primary production of silver moved to North America, particularly Canada, Mexico and the US.
Poland emerged as an important producer during the 1970s after the discovery of copper deposits that were rich in silver, before the centre of production returned to the Americas the following decade. Today, Peru and Mexico, China are still among the primary silver producers, but the distribution of silver production around the world is quite balanced and about one-fifth of the silver supply comes from recycling instead of new production
Now todays main Jewelry production country's are Laos, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Thailand.
Brass is a metal composed primarily of copper and zinc. Copper is the main component, and brass is usually classified as a copper alloy. 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. Brass is stronger and harder than copper, but not as strong or hard as steel. It is easy to form into various shapes, a good conductor of heat, and generally resistant to corrosion from salt water. Because of these properties, it is an excellent metal to make and design jewelry from
