Hardness is approximately 150-190. Yellow Brass, also considered a"Bronze", is 60% Copper, 33% Zinc, 2% Iron, 1.5% Aluminum, 1-5% Manganese, 1% Tin, .

Is brass a hard metal? Brass is a metal alloy that is always made with a combination of copper and zinc. By varying the amount of copper and zinc, brass can be made harder or-softer. Other metals—such as aluminum, lead, and arsenic—may be used as alloying agents to improve machinability and corrosion resistance.

Which is harder glass or steel? But researchers at the University of California at Berkeley and California Institute of Technology have created a metallic glass that can get around that problem. The new metallic glass is stronger and tougher than steel (and any other material known to man). Like glass, the fabricated material was not crystalline.
