It's silver colored wire inside, but that shouldn't matter.
But whatever you do, DO NOT
unsolder the antenna wire from the circuit board.
When you look at it, it looks as if the wire was going through the board and is just simply soldered to the underside of the board, but that's not true.
It's too complicated to explain, but the antenna actually connects to the upper side of the board and it's nearly impossiple with a normal iron to get that done right.
Been there, done that, got no shirt
So, just attach the missing length to what's left of your antenna.
IMHO, the antenna wire is crap. It's getting brittle quickly and then breaks. Mine broke directly at the circit board.
