It certainly is in mine. The symmmetry is beautiful and appealing, and tin is a good metal for the element of air.

Umath is the original elemental lord of air, and his metal is tin. Orlanth and the other young storm gods are born of matings. Orlanth's mother is a mountain (and quite possibly a dragon), so his metal is bronze.
