Bronze, in my words

raes : bronze

The Illunse word for bronze (metal alloy) is raes. In Old English rǽs traslates to a race, rush, leap or jump.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for bronze which is braes, and the Latin word for bronze, which is aes or aeris.

Bronze is a metal alloy. Bronze is mostly copper, with some tin added (usually between 5% and 20% tin). Bronze was the first alloy that was used by humans.
