GEMMOLOGICAL INSTRUMENTS


TIP: if the metal is magnetic or if, when you file the item, you can feel that the metal is hard (as hard as the steel file) - it cannot possibly be gold or silver or platinum, there is no need to use acid. (But being magnetic does not mean it’s steel, some steel is not magnetic).


• Clear (high-zinc 9ct) Bottle: Clear Fluid or Base Fluid. Appearance: the bottle is labelled CLEAR FLUID (8- 9ct), the top of the bottle cap has a brown dot, the fluid is clear. Purpose: to distinguish a particular 9ct alloy that contains a high level of zinc from ‘standard’ 9ct, and at the same time to give an indication of very low-grade gold such as 8ct.


TIP: this is not an easy fluid to use and should not be used in place of the standard 9ct bottle. Also, since the high-zinc alloy is quite recent, all items should be hallmarked, so test the hallmark link, check that the


remainder of the item has the same reaction. Code

• The most efficient aid you will need to test gold • Use with our gold test solutions to determine objects gold content

• Indian star has 5 points for yellow gold 10, 14, 18, 21 & 22 carat & 1 point for silver


Using the Touchstone and Test Star


1. Select the pointer you think the item you are testing matches (i.e. if you think it is a 9ct piece, compare it to the 9ct pointer)


2. This 9ct gold test pointer resembles a 9ct gold piece (meaning it is similar in colour and has a similar effect on the touchstone)


3. Scratch the pointer over the touchstone (don’t scratch it with excessive force)


4. Now pick up the gold piece you want to test and scratch a part of it over the touchstone, right next to the scratch you made with the test pointer


5. Test both scratches with acid at the same time and watch the results. If they react in the same way, you know you have determined the carat of gold you were testing!


6. Refer to testing solution instruction for fluid reaction times and colours

Gold Testing - Precious Metal Testing Stones


When testing for gold, always suspect that the item could be plated.


Rub the stone over the piece to remove any plate on the item.


Apply the acid as required on the touch stone to test.


Applying testing acid directly on to the metal will discolour the item, therefore if a piece is returned to the customer there will be no acid spoil inflicted on to the metal.


(Stone size may vary)


Other Uses: • After sharpening your gravers on a sharpening stone use a “Touch Stone” to achieve a mirror finish, a better way than using conventional abrasive paper that could rip.
