Other finishes applied to this metal - available for fabricated items only:

Zinc with dark patina finish

Dark patina is a type of finish applied on zinc usually after fabrication of counter tops, planters etc. The idea behind this, is to allow for a nice blend, where welds or solder lines are not as visible, giving the part fabricated depending on what it is, the appearance of a solid piece. In counter tops, a satin finish is a nice alternative to raw finish because a the raw material comes with no protective film, meaning it has some scratches from the factory and it also gets scratched during production. A satin finish also helps accelerate the patina process of the metal. In any case, a counter top for example, will get scratched with usage, which will look normal after a while, but it will be very noticeable at first. A satin finish makes it so these new scratches are not nearly as visible.
