    It’s copper which is brownish (think penny) When copper oxidizes it turns green. Just like too much copper in pool water turns blonde hair green. (It’s really not the chlorine!) Have you ever worn a copper bracelet and have you wrist turn green?

    That’s why all the parliament buildings in Canada have green roofs (spelling?).
    The old hospital in Saint John, near where I live, had a copper dome when they demolished the hospital. The dome remained intact during the implosion and now sits in a little park in the city. They have cleaned the dome and put something on it to keep it from oxidizing and have used the dome as the roof for a gazebo type structure in the park.

    Great new info 3K chick.
    This was a fun pick to put together with LB’s great opals!

    KPJEWELS says:

    I will try to get a picture of the dome next time I go into the city, which isn’t very often. I’d rather spend my money at LB. HE, he

    Very Sharp! I have a print in my living room – a photo taken in Paris of the initial construction…with the scaffolding around it… Love this!

    That’s cool! Thank you! The kids were amazed that it was built in France, taken apart and shipped here.
