Yellow is actually an alloy of metals consisting of Copper and Zinc. Yellow is called that for its color of course and has a lower percentage of copper than in red. This color which is close to gold has been used for both finish and qualities of consistent sound in instruments, cymbals, horns... It is also used when "no spark" is required as in values and equipment where explosive gases are used.

This is often found in heavy duty meters and gauges. Actually reddish in color when the material is cut or broken open showing the higher copper content.

The term "Dirty" is used to describe that there is a contaminate metal or sometimes glass which has been mixed in with the material and therefore a lower value as purity is reduced. This often happens in valves and meters when handles and or stems are made from another material such as steel or "die cast." Dirty can also refer to a finish that is applied to create another "color" and is often found in the handles and pipe of the plumbing industry.
