Does brass tarnish?
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen. Some people like the patina of tarnished brass and the tarnish is actually a protective layer for the brass. However the shine can be restored with a polishing cloth, steel wool or many household products.
