    Shakudo:

    Shakudo is an alloy of copper and gold, (typically 4-10% gold, 96-90% copper). It can be treated to form an indigo/black patina.

    Shakudo was historically used in Japan to construct or decorate katana fittings such as tsuba, menuki, and kozuka; as well as other small ornaments.

    It can be used to make great objects and jewellery where a blue/black patina gives wonderul contrast with silver or gold.
