Bell-metal, Bronze and Brass

Bronze age marks the beginning of human tryst with metals. An era when civilization reached great heights. Soon stone tools were replaced by bronze tools. Production of Bronze, an alloy of copper and tin, started in the Middle East, Anatolia, and the Aegean in the late 4000 and 3000 BCE.

Time passed but bronze along with few similar alloys has still not lost its sheen. Its used to make utensils, artifacts and ornaments.

Bronze is an alloy of copper ~90% and tin ~10 and is still as useful as in bronze age.

Bell metal is a bronze with a high tin content of 20–25 percent with traces of few other metal like zinc, lead, magnesium, nickel and iron which are added depending on usage. Due to its sonorous quality when struck, it was used to make bells, hence named bell-metal. Higher the tin content, higher is rigidity and resonance.

Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc dates back to Neolithic times. Proportion of metals used depends on uses that range from home to various industries.

Ayurveda recommends cooking and eating in cookwares and serve-wares made of these metals good for health.
