If you mix the two metals copper and zinc, the resultant alloy is Brass. Brass is distinctly different from the other historic metal, Bronze, which is an alloy of copper and tin.

Brass is well regarded for its similarity to gold as well as it's wonderful musical audio characteristics, and is revered greatly in two completely different forms of art - sculptures and musical instruments. It is a soft metal that is widely used in low-friction applications (brass locks and keys are still very popular) and it's great electrical properties make it useful in electrical applications. The resistance of brass to generating sparks from friction makes it a great metal to use in places (e.g. machinery operating in a volatile gaseous mixtures) where sparks could be disastrous.

The history of brass is ancient - in India, Brass is known to be in use from before 3,000 BC. Even today, artisans of Kashmir make Brass utensils, often oxidized.
