Brass is a metal alloy composed of copper and zinc which has gained popularity because of its bright color and resistance to wear. Like all other natural elements of the world- gemstones, planets, spirit animals, and so on- metals, too, hold rich symbolic meaning and characteristics. After all, there were entire periods of human civilization named after these earthly materials, such as the Iron and Bronze ages. Brass has been known to be associated with endurance, positivity, problem-solving, and youthfulness of the mind.
