I’ve been doing some research into different colours of gold
alloys. I’ve been trying to discover more info on the bluish gold
(75% gold, 25% pure iron) but I haven’t been able to find one peep.
I have a few questions to pose regarding this specific alloy, if
no one minds terribly: 1. What sort of pickle would one use with
this? 2. Would it eventually rust or something? 3. Is it easily
alloyable with just a plain crucible, propane/oxy torch and normal
ingot mold? 4. Is it a brittle gold: can I easily bend it or bang
it? 5. Is it safe to run through the rolling mill and to use with
normal tools? 6. Does it have a high enough final melting temp to
withstand soldering with 18K white solder? 7. Am I totally nuts
here in wanting to try it? Is there just too darn much involved in
Anyhow, I thankyou all for your patience and your wisdom. You are
all a truly helpful bunch!
