Golden coloured alloy question (2 replies and 1 comment)
Please join and login to participate and leave a comment.
I was working on a side project and while working on it, I found I needed to think of a strong gold coloured alloy that isn't too dense but still quite durable. I am in no way a metallurgist, so I'm sorry if I use wrong terms or misunderstand some things.
Now, as mentioned previously, the alloy I'm attempting to "create" needs to be a reflective golden colour, not too dense, and durable enough (I read somewhere about the Moh's scale, I'm not sure if that applies here, but I'm trying to achieve something that is at least lands at a 6 or a 7.)
A composition I've thought of so far through looking at various sources is as follows:
Would this alloy be possible theoretically? And if so, would it meet what I'm looking for like the colour and hardness?
Thank you in advance for reading!
