Light fixture wires

I bought some new light fixtures. All the wiring on the fixtures look like aluminum wiring. Did I buy the wrong fixtures?

No. That is tinned copper. Cut a small piece off and look at a cross section.

Tinned copper is the most likely but it could be some other metal, even steel. Definitely not aluminum.
