A bag of 16g 7/32" that I recently got that should be Bright Silver was indeed silver in color, but it seemed a bit dull when I picked up the bag. At first I thought I had gotten some Bright Aluminum by mistake, but when I opened the bag and compared with some Bright Alu I can see it is slightly whiter, so it must be anodized.
It's almost as if there's a slight coating on it that hinders the usual sparkly shine. Had it been Bright Aluminum, I would say it needed a good tumble. ;-)
I'm not at all happy with it, since this makes it difficult to use in combination with other sizes of Bright Silver. While it's not a huge difference, it is noticable when comparing with other rings and (for example) a graduated Byzantine chain looks rather bad when the focus point is duller than the rest.
I wonder if it's only my bag (SXAA16732silver) that was this way, of if it's the whole batch?
