You might have heard of Black metal but we don’t think you have truly confronted with the real yet, many foreign research institutes have been baffled to understand how the soil found at the fort of Bidar exhibits such magical oxidizing properties that turns zinc, a metal which is white in colour into sheer black when dipped in this rare soil.

Some proclaim that the soil has not seen light for centuries and some as an area of Alien spacecraft landing, however the answers still remains a mystery irrespective of many documents in internet claiming the true reason for such mysterious nature.

Imagine the beauty that lies with the Persian craft of inlaying Silver and Gold in a metal that turns mysteriously black, Bidri Work, a craft form that truly deserved the prestigious GI Tagged Status accorded by Government of India, recognized by World Trade Organization (WTO). ​
