    Summary: Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin, with lead also added. Hellenistic and Roman bronze objects have a variable percentage of metals, and because of this the colour of the alloy will differ depending on the proportions. The colour of the alloy can be maintained by polishing, but it is also possible to give a patina to the surface of bronze using a reagent. The surface layers of other bronze wares Some other ancient bronzes (of lower tin content than the mirrors) u n e a r t h e d in China have shiny black surfaces, just like the Hei-Qi Gu mirrors. They include sacrificial vessels, weapons, utensils and ornaments (H a n Rubin et al , Ma Z h a o z e n g and H a n Rubin ).Cited by: 1.
