Bronze vs Copper Fittings

In some pictures, and in a plumbing supply store, I saw some fittings (tees, elbows, etc.) that had a bronze look, and didn't look like the copper ones I'm used to seeing. Were they in fact copper and not bronze? Is there a reason to use one or the other?

If they were threaded fittings they were brass, and can be used anywhere copper can.

There's also CAST COPPER fittings that look like brass/bronze as well... for example:

NL12-08 - Cello NL12-08 - 1/2" CxCxF Tee (Lead Free)

NJ that's what it was. They said c x c x f or whatever on them too. Why do they call them that?

That's the description of the fitting.
Copper x Copper x Female.
