Silver testing via acid solutions is a classic way of testing silver items for their purity. This method is best used on scrap silver to be smelted due to the destructive nature of the testing but can be used on silver pieces to be worn if the testing if done in an inconspicuous spot. The neutralizer will prepare a test stone for accurate testing and also help spare your fingers and clothes from burns and stains while using gold testing acid. Needle Files can be used when you suspect an item may be heavily plated. This test will damage the piece, especially if not gold or silver. Take the needle file and file into an inconspicuous spot. Place the item down on the testing stone and place a drop of the corresponding acid directly to the spot you filed into. If the acid reacts to the piece by changing different colors and/or eating away at the item it is plated. If an item is real it will not have a reaction and will cause very little damage to the item. Clean, buff, and polish the item and the test will not be as noticeable. Testing for Silver Rub or scrape the piece against a black testing stone. Rub or scrape a piece you know the purity of next to it. Be sure the marks are full and noticeable. Place a drop of silver testing acid solution on each mark. The acid will change colors depending on the purity; you should compare the reactions between the two marks to ensure accuracy. When testing on a piece of jewelry, create a small gouge in the piece in an inconspicuous spot on the piece. Place a small drop of acid on the mark, and observe the color change.
