Single bottle of acid in strong wooden box, with steel needle file and instructions.

The bottle:

  • contains enough fluid for 100 tests and has a shelf life of up to two years. 
  • is semi-transparent so that you can see how much fluid remains.
  • a childproof cap.

Each acid changes colour when applied, and the colour (and the speed of the reaction) tells you what the metal is.

Choose between the silver or 9ct tester.

Single bottle in strong wooden box plus steel needle file, magnet and instructions.

Tests for silver. A good choice if you deal only in silver and really have no use for gold testers.

The reaction is clear and dramatic on Sterling silver (92.5% pure, ".925") and a keen eye can see an even stronger reaction on pure (.999) silver. On "low grade" silver the reaction is less pronounced, you can see a slight reaction on .800 or .750 silver. 


Single bottle in strong wooden box plus steel needle file, magnet and instructions.

Will tell you if an item is not gold or if it is 9ct or if it is better than 9ct.

If it is better than 9ct it WON'T tell you how much better (you will need the QUICKTEST-3 set instead).



The fluids are acid - you will need a steady hand and good eyesight; the bottles must be kept well away from children and stored upright in a cool place - if this is not possible DO NOT buy one of these.
