    That seems pretty heavy for the size of it. I base that on the picture of it in your hand. It doesn't look terribly large. Will a magnet stick to it?

    A magnet does not stick to it

    Ok, in that it is not magnetic I would "guess" based on the weight and color that it is either brass, bronze or lead. I think you can rule out lead because when lead tarnishes it turns a dull gray color. Brass tarnishes to a blue/green color and bronze may show white, yellow, light green colors as it tarnishes. Not seeing it in other than a picture it is difficult to tell. However, tarnish on bronze should brush off easily with a fairly stiff brush almost like it is a hardened powder.
