Yellow brass contains about 60%-70% copper, making it less valuable than red brass. A higher zinc content is what creates the more yellow coloring. Because the copper content in yellow brass is lower than red brass it is priced lower.
Yellow brass is extremely common. Often found in household items such as plumbing products, jewelry, keys, faucets, etc. Yellow brass is also used in vehicles for various purposes as well as musical instruments.
