Not titanium candle stick holders.
|Not titanium candle stick holders.|
Are these candle stick holders really made of titanium? No, they were just claimed to be made of titanium by the seller. In fact they are 98.3% tin with the remainder being primarily copper, according to analysis by x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy at the Center for Microanalysis of Materials, University of Illinois (partially supported by the U.S. Department of Energy under grant DEFG02-91-ER45439). Just another example of why you should be cautions about claims that something is made of titanium.
