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).



Anyone over the age of 18 may buy acids for testing precious metals as part of their trade / business / profession. That includes organisations, large companies, small businesses, individual traders working from home, even collectors who trade by buying  and selling.

If  none of the above apply, you will need an EPP license from the Home OfficeThis is because acids can be used for making explosives.


We can only ship by road, to destinations covered by the UPS Dangerous Chemicals service. That includes nearly all of mainland Britain and most of mainland Europe.

We cannot ship by sea. That includes any island, unless it's connected to mainland Britain or mainland Europe by a road bridge.

We cannot ship by air. That includes some parts of the Highlands, all of Ireland (North and South) and anywhere outside Europe. This is because UPS do not operate a road service to these destinations, parcels go by air. 



The fluids are acid, you will need a steady hand and good eyesight. Acids must be kept well away from children and stored upright in a cool place. If this is not possible DO NOT buy this product.
