SUMMARY TRADE ONLY! Anyone over the age of 18 may buy acids for testing precious metals as part of their trade / business / profession (e.g. retail jewellers, antiques shop, auction house, pawnbrokers). See "Restrictions" for more information.  Three bottle tester, tests for all carats of gold and also silver. Each acid changes colour when applied to the metal, and the colour (and the speed of the reaction) will tell you if it is gold, and the carat. Also tests for silver. This is the 'industry-standard' tester, clearest instructions, colour-reactions easy to see, even for the colour blind. Each set includes a needle-file (to check for plating), a sample of copper (to see the reaction on 'base' metal), a magnet (gold and silver aren't magnetic), and a very clear  instructions booklet - they all fit neatly into the box with the acids. To download the instruction manual click here. To read about various methods of testing gold click here to read the article.  DETAIL Supplied in strong wooden box which contains the accessories and instructions (there is also a summary of the instructions fixed to lid). The instructions are very simple, there are even instructions for the colour blind, you don't have to distinguish between green, grey and brown. This is THE 'industry standard' tester. The simplest (easy to use) set on the market. Strong wooden box for safety, accessories included, childproof bottles. We have been manufacturing this model since 1986. Accessories: magnet, needle file, sample of 'base' metal (copper). The first bottle tells you if the metal is not gold or 9ct or better than 9ct. The second bottle tells you if the metal is 14ct, 18ct, 22ct or 24ct (and it's accurate enough to gauge 'in between' these readings) The third bottle tests for silver (Sterling, 925 grade or 'continental' .800). Each bottle contains enough fluid for 100 to 150 tests and has a shelf life of between one and two years (the 'use by' date is printed on each label). Each bottle is semi-transparent so that you can see how much fluid remains.  RESTRICTIONS RESTRICTIONS ON SALES 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 licence from the Home Office. This is because acids can be used for making explosives. RESTRICTIONS ON SHIPPING 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.  SAFETY + DISCLAIMER SAFETY 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. Download our 4-page plain-English guide to safety.  The full COSHH data sheets (114 pages) are available upon request. DISCLAIMER All equipment and materials must be used in conjunction with the user's skill, knowledge and experience. Under no circumstances shall QUICKTEST be liable for direct or indirect loss sustained in connection with any item. It is your responsibility to regularly check equipment against known samples to ensure that it is working correctly. LINKS Watch the videos or see/download the instruction manual.

Quicktest-3 tester for gold and silver
The kit has improved from glass bottles that I used in 1990 to plastic. The only fault I found was very difficult to open and because the bottles are polythene it is possible to squeeze fluid out when
