Mark...I researched properties of Silicon...I suspect they wanted a larger atom to make for a stiffer alloy with lubricant property...more slippery to resist mechanical wear due to its network covalent bond...at least that is what I suspect.

Huge statues...need to be stiff/not malleable.Thanks for your answer.  I had some victor badges casted up awhile ago and there weren’t to many people fond of using yellow brass.  Most wanted to use a silicon bronze which seemed a little to dark for our fans.  I’m guessing there is a difference.  Thanks MarkActually, thinking back, it could have been silicone brass.
