FIND HIDDEN GOLD !!!

Much gold is thrown away as costume jewelry when it really is under 10k gold.

Much white gold is actually platinum.

Much 14k gold is actually 18k

Most gold and other precious metal is identified by its resistance to nitric acid. This simple test is great for identifying yellow gold. However, acid cannot differ white platinum from many other white metals such as stainless steel. The acid test also misses 8-9k Irish gold, the alloy being too low in gold to resist the acid. And, 22k Indian gold is usually sold at 18k prices since most acid test kits do not contain 22k acid.

The more expensive electronic testers also miss white gold. They do work on modern yellow gold alloys. They do not work on many antique yellow golds.

FIND HIDDEN GOLD ON EBAY:

Look for antique white gold, especially 18k. Some of it will be more expensive platinum.

Look for old gold originating in China, India, and the Far East. Some of it will be 22k and higher

FIND HIDDEN GOLD IN FLEA MARKETS AND ESTATE SALES:

The pen allows very rapid testing of costume jewelry.

Look for a brown color, indicating 10k or 14k gold. Very little gold is 10k or 14k plated. Any gold that tests with a red color is probably plated. A lot of 10k gold is bonded, meaning solid 10k gold is welded over brass. It has some value and is usually marked as 1/20 gold. There is no bargain in hallmarked jewelry. It is either as marked or less.

-PEN INSTRUCTIONS-

1. HOLD PEN WIRE UNDER TEST METAL.
2. RUB PEN POINT ON TOP OF METAL.
3. GOLD METAL DISSOLVES INTO AN INK.
4. DRAW A LINE ON PAPER WITH THE INK.
5. TEST ONLY A BRIGHT METAL SURFACE.

The salt in the pen barrel is not hazardous, but the ink may irritate skin. Remove ink from jewelry with ajax or comet cleansing powder wet with water. Always test known gold first.

Plated gold on costume jewelry is a problem with all metal testers. Acid and Mizar type testers require filing. Mizar then further requires lacquering around the unfiled test area before dipping in its electrolyte. With the pen, rub the same test spot 5-10 times. Thinly plated gold shows little, if any color. Thickly plated gold will crack, which you can see and feel with your fingernail. Good gold will not crack.

A lot of white gold for diamond rings is now rhodium plated to avoid nickel allergies. Rhodium plate, usually thin, must be removed as above to test the gold beneath.

INK COLOR ON YELLOW GOLD METAL:
24K- a red ink that remains red on the metal.
22K- a red ink that turns black within 5 seconds.
18K- a thick black ink.
14K- a black ink.
10K- a thin black ink.
WHITE GOLD: Nickel/Gold surface is turned to yellow gold.
CAUTION: Testing removes rhodium plate revealing yellow gold.
CHAINS: Attach the wire to aluminum foil, lay the chain on the foil, and test a link surface.
PLATED GOLD: Crack the plate by repeatedly testing the same surface.

GOLD INK COLOR ON PAPER: Use only white printer paper.
18K-24K: Makes an orange (red+yellow) ink on paper.
14K- Makes a brown ink (red from gold+green from copper). A line drawn on paper starts brown and ends green.
10K- Makes a brown ink (red from gold+green from copper). A test line also starts brown, but ends with more green.
WHITE GOLD: Nickel/Gold makes a brown ink (red from gold+bright green from nickel). A test line starts brown, but ends bright green.
Rhodium plated gold makes a green ink.
PLATED GOLD: Little ink color, usually red from 18-24K plating.

SILVER: Mark the metal surface as with gold. A gray metallic ink forms. Expose the ink to light. Times below are for a 100 watt light bulb. In bright sunlight, ink turns black about 10 times faster.
FINE SILVER (100%) Ink will turn black within 30 minutes of exposure.
STERLING SILVER (90%): Ink will turn black within 10 minutes of exposure.
50%-75% SILVER: Thin ink turning black within 2 minutes of exposure.
PLATED SILVER: Repeatedly test the same surface to reveal the underlying base metal.

SILVER INK COLOR ON PAPER:
50%-100%): Silver makes a white Ink that does not color paper. Any green color is due to the nickel or copper alloy.

PLATINUM (100%): White metal surface is not marked.
PLATINUM INK: Makes a bright orange ink on pen point and paper.
Ink fades rapidly to yellow on printer paper.

PALLADIUM(100%): White metal is marked with a purplish black color.
PALLADIUM INK: Unlike silver, the ink also writes black on paper.

Dear Andy,
Thank you for sending the pictures so fast. I can only tell you they look authentic except that Wendell would not have put his name on any artifact. We checked the photos with our field notes and it does match the TC972 drawing that we have.
Sincerely,
Merilyn Phillips Hodgson
