This video shows how to test silver and gold at home using the specific gravity test! If you are wanting to learn about how to test gold or how to test silver then this is the video for you. The specific gravity test is testing for the specific gravity of the metal and it can be done by weighing the piece and then weighing it again in water and dividing the second number by original weight. Here are the specific gravities of a few metals that you might be testing:
Sterling Silver: 10.36
90% Silver: 10.31
24K Gold: 19.32
22K Yellow Gold: 18
Because this test only requires a scale it is a very cheap gold test and a cheap silver test that you can do at home or on the go. If you are wanting to test silver coins or silver bars this text will work just fine. I do the test on an American Silver Eagle and a piece of poured silver. This test is better than testing gold with acid or testing silver with acid because it will not damage the piece. This test for gold and silver should not be done on pieces with numismatic value or slabbed pieces.
