Panchaloha is a term for traditional five metal alloys of sacred significance, is an alloy of gold, silver, zinc, iron as major constituents and in some cases tin or lead in place of zinc. Benefits of this include balance in life, self-confidence, good health, prosperity and, above all, peace of mind. The provenance of this is traceable to the 13th century AD. The composition is obtained when copper and zinc were added in partial amounts with continuous stirring using a graphite rod and finally addition of lead sulphide powder and stirred to obtain homogeneity, molten charge was held at the melting temperature and cast into a metal mould.
