anyone able to tell me how to get liquid mercury of 18ct yellow
gold rings, one is diamond set. Polishing won't do it. also need to
know safety measures to take. Mask and gloves etc Thx
Ive not done it but know that mercury can be removed from gold by
heating. IE you volatalise it off.
Its the principle of fire gilding.
Mercury vapours are highly toxic so youd need to do it outside with
you being UPWind of the process.
If your in an urban area its not something I do. out in the sticks
you need to do your research on temps and time first.
tho the amounts on rings will be small.
French ormulu was always fire gilt and gilders died young! ! There
may be other ways, but im not familiar with them.
