What are my pots made of?

I have a very beloved set of pots handed down from my grandmother. I always assumed thet were cast iron but I am not sure, and I am curious about them. They were purchased in Eastern Europe in the late 40's. The smallest and the fry pan look like cast iron but are not quite as heavy as other cast iron I have seen. The larger pots are black on the outside but the inside is a matte dark blue color. Any ideas? My main concern is that there is some pitting here and there and I hope there is nothing unsafe seeping into my food. I know this might be tough to answer but just wondering...
