masonary drill bits

I got a drill and a pretty large set of bits. I am not sure which bits are the masonary bits. Can anyone help me out. Are they the copper looking ones or the sliver ones? New with drills. thanks for your help.

This is one type of carbide-tip masonry bit. Usually silver colored.

Probably would be easier for you to identify them by going to a hardware store and looking at labeled bits, so that you would know exactly what you have.

Masonry bits can be a silver color or normal steel color. Normally the end of the bit is slightly larger than the shank and the carbide cutters are visibly welded to the tip.
