What's up with these zildjian custom dark hats?

What are they made out of anyway?

Forgive me, I am not sure, but aren't most cymbals bronze, and therefore, wear is not going to look silver after the finish rubs off? (like w/ these hats?)

Copper and tin and some silver. Hammering makes the sound really. I will tell you that the finish will not ever "rub" off, But elements and time will give them a worn look and even tarnish the cymbals.
