During the turn of the century (or maybe a littler earlier I
think) there was a fake gold made called Pinchebeck, consisting
of 17% zinc and the rest copper. The examples of jewelry made
with this alloy really look like gold. So I tried to make some to
see if I could. Well, the zinc pretty much boiled off after
adding it to the copper and all I got was nicely de-oxed copper
for the most part. I wonder if anyone has ever made this stuff
and any tips you could give if its possible to make in a small
shop. Also, does anyone know where I can buy zinc for alloying?
