I really don’t know off hand. I will have to dig up the literature on it
and
see… I will let you know if I can find it… the Metal is really great to work
with though… Try it out and you will agree…

In message UPMAIL09.199609252346570450@msn.com you happened to mention:

Brian,
I don’t know what it is they put in the metal to make it a deox. But I
do
know that the metal itself after it is casted or whatever is absolutly NOT
brittle at all… Also if you are suggesting that the metal may not truely be

sterling, well here in the UNITED STATES we have laws against
misrepresentaiton of this sort of thing…
Marc

Hi Marc.
No I wasn’t insinuating that the metal isn’t sterling - It only has to have
the requires % of silver to comply, Right? It’s just that the REMAINDER is
not often disclosed. I’d like to know what is in this sterling, in the 7.5%
part.
