Seller: houghton-usa (1,515) 100%, Location: Sequim, Washington, Ships to: US, Item: 254100159054 ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS Artifacts, Antiques & Fine Collectibles Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE BRONZE Facts Museums and modern archaeological studies usually use the general term “copper alloy” instead of just the term “bronze” to describe these ancient treasures, as many other elements (such as tin, lead, zinc, iron, and even arsenic) were added to the copper to form different strengths of types of bronze items. Ancient bronze artifacts such as this bracelet are probably about 75% copper and 25% tin, while modern bronze is closer to 88% copper and 12% tin. This historic bracelet has a beautiful, old patina with some signs of oxidation of the two main elements (tin and copper) that make up this exquisite bracelet. One interesting property of bronze is that once it has oxidized superficially, a copper oxide layer is formed on the surface and essentially protects the object from further damaging corrosion. This protective layer turns in another compound, called copper carbonate for you scientists, that protects most bronze pieces from even corrosive saltwater. I have carefully examined this bracelet under 10x magnification and it also shows authentic and original signs of weathering and ground contact that help to further authenticate it as an ancient piece. I Guarantee this item to be 100% authentic or your money back! You will not be disappointed! Please examine the photos taken indoors carefully as they are part of the description. The wood stand and AA battery are not part of the auction, just there to give you a perspective. And please ask any questions before you buy. I offer a full Money-Back Guarantee if a recognized authority disputes the authenticity of this object. Note: Please ask any questions you may have before you bid! Thanks for Looking! Per e-Bay's rules, PayPal only please! FREE SHIPPING & Insurance within USA! Condition: This Evil Eye style Roman bracelet/bangle has an inside diameter of about 2.75" although it is slightly bent from a perfect oval in antiquity. It has a wonderful, original patina that is perfect as the bronze has a bronze oxidation from a chemical reaction with the minerals in the soil it was buried in. I guarantee it is original and authentic and displays wonderfully! Please see photos as they are part of the description. Thank You for Looking!, Material: Bronze, Period: Roman
