The Apple Card is 90% titanium and 10% aluminum, reports Bloomberg Businessweek.

The site sent the card to professor Hans-Rudolf Wenk, a mineralogist at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Apple Card isn’t the first credit card to be made with metal, as both American Express and Chase offer their own heavy cards, but Apple’s stands out, given the company’s push to market its metallic essence. It’s also Apple’s first product made primarily from the strong, lightweight metal since the PowerBook laptop was discontinued 15 years ago, and it could be a manufacturing test for new titanium Apple Watches launching this fall.

Using a scanning electron microscope (SEM), Professor Wenk determined that the card was about 90% titanium and 10% aluminum.

The physical card recently made headlines when Apple warned that jeans and leather could permanently discolor it.
