Both brass and copper will naturally oxidize to a dark finish over time. This can easily be polished with a polish pad or sunshine polishing cloth. Brass and copper will both react with moisture (sweat, water, perfume, etc.) to turn skin green. It's not painful or itchy, and will wash right off, however if you would prefer not to deal with this issue, we recommend your select sterling silver or gold for your jewelry.
