oxidation of elements?

I got to thinking the other day about what effect oxidation has on antenna elements (if any?). This was prompted by an installation at my brother-in-laws place where I had put up some Gray Hoverman elements a while back. He is moving to a place that has some Vhf-Hi signals, so I built him a 4-bay bowtie and took back the GH elements. Now, I'm planning to reuse them in another build, but was wondering if the fact that they are not as shiny-clean as before will have any kind of negative effect. I know it probably won't matter, but I'm still curious. Thanks in advance for any indulgence to my curiosities.
