It is made up of Onyx and Abalone and Alpaca Silver. Alpaca Silver is an alloy of copper, nickel, and zinc. Sometimes called Nickel Silver or German Silver, the usual formulation is 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc. This technique of metal working was practiced by the Chinese for two millennia, and called “Paktong.” In an attempt to imitate the Chinese alloy, “Neusilber” or New Silver was developed by a German scientist in the early 19th century, and later marketed under the trade name “Alpacca” Silver.
