Not titanium candle stick holders.
Are these candle stick holders really made of titanium? No, they were just claimed to be made of titanium by the seller. In fact they are 98.3% tin with the remainder being primarily copper, according to analysis by x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy at the Center for Microanalysis of Materials, University of Illinois (partially supported by the U.S. Department of Energy under grant DEFG02-91-ER45439). Just another example of why you should be cautions about claims that something is made of titanium.
