Magnesium Or Aluminum Mower Deck?

Hello friends, I was curious if anyone new how to determine whether a mower deck was aluminum or magnesium? My scrap guy says he can SEE the difference. Any help here? Thanks.....Mike

Cut a small sliver of metal from somewhere out of the way. Burn it in a gas torch. If it burns brilliant white, it is magnesium (or actually a magnesium alloy).
