I am doing a Copper Plating experiment. I put two clam type shells into thecopper plating solution and 2/3 of the shell turned a dark copper color and the other part, near the hinge of the clam, turned green. Is this due to the organic makup of the shell and can you give me more information on why this happened.
I have no idea. I'm here to answer marine mammal questions. Sorry.
