Will brass turn my skin green?

I just bought a necklace and it describes the pendant part of it as being made of brass.

I was wondering if this will make my skin turn green.

Thanks.

    Depending on your acidity the brass may oxidize a bit. That turns the BRASS green, not your skin and then it rubs off on you. Most likely the pendant has a clear lacquer on it that keeps it shiny, that finish will also prevent the oxidation.
