All unpainted/uncovered aluminum will fade in some sort. Depending on humidity or how dirty your fingers/hands are dictates how fast it starts to look dull. And yes, it's normal.

Just take a buffing cloth or micro fiber cloth and buff it. If you're good with your hands, you can also use some aluminum polish.... It will clean it right up. Just be careful...

I work in the sheetmetal industry. If the exposed aluminum doesn't have some kind of coating on it, like a clear anodized coat, it will start to oxidize.

This is what I was trying to say.....you said it much better! The word I was looking for was "oxidation" but was having a brain fart!
