Zinc Table Tops

Zinc dates back to the ancient times where impure forms were used. Judean brass from the 14th century contains about 23% which is the first known finding of the element. It was not distinctly recognized until 1374. 

Major uses of zinc include galvanizing, alloys, brass and bronze, and other miscellaneous ways in the United States. The metal is most commonly used as an anti-corrosion agent. Galvanization is the most common form of using zinc in this way. 

It is often today found in more industrial and modern furniture. I especially love to mix it with the new and old.
