Why is my brass bar rail a different shade than the components?

Explaining differences in appearance between bar rail tubing and components

Due to differences in the production and material of our brushed brass tubing and components (brackets, end caps, etc.), you may notice a slight color variation when you first receive them. This will balance out over time as the brass naturally patinas. Patina is a naturally-occurring chemical process where oxidation takes place due to exposure to carbon dioxide or water.
