Blue gold!


#1

Hello Orchidites-:^)

I finally found it! I have looked everywhere for my notes on
technicolor gold, so now here it is. Fairly straight forward-
figure the weight that you want to come out with and convert the
percentages. Combine these components, melt (and be sure to let the
alloy ‘soak’ so that it is homogenous) and cast away with blue or
any other color gold. And all of this from somebody who has never
made a gram of the stuff! :^)(just kidding) Good luck- hope this
helps somebody. Ricky Low Houston, Texas

  what does the 3D pure mean?

I know its an alloy of 45 or 54 percent indium, balance gold. Im
too lazy to check right now but the reference is in the area of
the Phase Diagrams for gold in the book Theorie und Praxis Fur
Goldsmiedes. The english translation is on its way. Of course i
dont know if alloying it like you might do a copper,silver,gold
alloy (ie: do you need a vacuum or whatever) but its certainly
interesting, and its an ice-blue. Robb Mitchell
