Silver, Ag, is
the 47th element in the periodic table. In color, silver is white &
lustrous. The density of silver is 10.5 g/cc. Silver melts at 952
degrees C, and boils at 2163 degrees C. Silver has a hardness
rated between 2.5 and 2.7, and is therefore one of the most malleable
of all metals.
In fluids, silver can exist in four basic forms - as a compound, a
neutral particle (as in ground silver), a negatively charged particle,
and a positively charged ion. Silver contained within plant
sources, as part of the normal complement of organic minerals, is
usually in the positively charged ionic form.
Silver salts are used extensively in photography. Various silver alloys are used for
silver jewelry. Sterling Silver is
used for high class tableware and eating utensils. Silver is an
excellent conductor of both heat and electricity making it a key
component in many electrical applications. Up until the late 1930's,
silver compounds were widely used in medicinal applications. (Silver
compounds have largely been supplanted by penicillin [and similar]
drugs for the purposes of conventional medicine.)
The "Alternative Medicine" community,
however, is coming back to the use of silver compounds and colloidal silver for
many medicinal purposes. This is due in part to the increasing number of
pathogens that no longer respond to "conventional antibiotics". All pathogenic
viruses and bacteria appear to have a similar oxygen transfer enzyme in their
exterior cell wall. Many researchers believe that when these
single cell pathogens come in contact with silver, the oxygen transfer enzyme is
disabled or inactivated, causing the pathogen to die. I have read numerous
places that "no known virus or bacteria has mutated to be immune to silver".
This statement may be true, or it may simply be the result of inadequate
research. The fact that many people place great stock in the concept explains
why they are willing to "try" colloidal silver when more conventional treatments
fail. The FDA does not approve colloidal silver for any medicinal
use...see FDA on Colloidal Silver
Silver is commonly available as
grain, ingot, round ingot, coin, sheet, flat stock, and round/half round/or
square rod or wire. Purity includes sterling (a compound), .999 fine, .9999 fine,
and .99999 fine. Prices vary according to supply, and purity. Silver with purity
above .999 fine is not always available.
All ".9999 fine or better" silver wire
is "custom fabricated", that is, refiners and fabricators do not normally keep
"pure silver wire" in stock. Commercial uses for pure silver wire are limited,
compared to other forms of silver and sterling silver
(jewelry) so fabrication of
pure silver wire is normally done on a consignment basis. Most fabricators have
a minimum order size of 1000 troy ounces for wire or rod.
Replacement sets of the pure .9999 fine
(or better) 14 gauge silver rod are available inexpensively from our company.
We also offer 12 gauge
sets of the pure .9999 fine (or better) silver rod, but only in the 6" strips or
the 5 foot rolls.
We guarantee the purity to be at least .9999 fine. None is less pure, much is
more pure. For use with the standard 16-ounce-per-batch units described above, replacement sets of pure .9999 fine
(or better) 14 gauge silver rod are available.
For use with the
"Big Batch" Heavy Duty Gallon-Sized unit,
replacement rods : 2 nine inch
strips per set, in the 14 gauge rods are available.
Silver is shipped separately from other products.
There is no additional charge for shipping additional sets of silver on the same
