It's anodized. Anodizing creates a layer of oxidation, the hardness of which approaches that of diamond. You need to have it professionally stripped and refinished by an anodizing company. It would be near what you paid for the case to have it done too.

Well, he painted it anyways, but it isn't that hard to strip anodization. Oven cleaner works.
