It is described with the following
adjectives - yellow/gold/iridescent/rainbow.
Most people will have seen cadmium plated nuts and screws - yellow in
colour but clearly not brass.
It is used because it is cheap and effective, but has been banned in
Europe due to the toxicity of cadmium: It causes cancer, damages your
kidneys and does a few other wonderful things.
It is not something you would want the burn, abrade, or include in
your still. You would need to satisfy yourself that this is not what
you are dealing with.
