Mentioned to my Grandma today that i was getting in to Alchemy and she asked me if i could make her colloidal silver. I was wandering how hard it was to make. I was planning on staying away from metals and just working on plants to start.

You need pure silver wire, distilled water and DC voltage source (preferably adjustable 9-24V or more). If you get those materials I imagine it is not difficult to make it.

How to make colloidal silver at home (http://www.google.co.il/search?q=how+to+make+colloidal+silver+at+home&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a)

Just make sure you only use distilled water, with nothing dissolved in it.

I just use (3) 9V batteries wired in series.
Fine silver wire (.999) from a jewelry/craft store for the electrodes.
If you heat up the distilled water it will work faster.

Distilled water will always have a fraction of carbonic acid via the absorption of CO2 during the distillation process. Sometimes the amount of carbonic acid present is very very small, but sometimes there's more than you'd imagine.

Side question. What do Alchemists use colloidial silver for, I have seen mention of it, however, didn't really look into the aspect of what its used for in other things, as making it seems rather simple in itself?

Colloidal silver is one of the most potent antibacterial agents known to man. I remember reading somewhere (not sure where) that back in ye' old times silver coins were dropped in water canteens to purify water when it couldn't be boiled. Kills any nasties that would otherwise make an individual sick. I'm pretty sure this would work. It's a good trick to know too.

I've made it with silver ounces/bullion as well since I imagine
it's a lot easier to find coin stores than places that sell silver wire.
Just cut one in half and pound a hole in each half to hang it from the copper wire.

Yeah, it's also possible to start with a very dilute solution of silver nitrate, and then reduce it via sodium citrate like when one makes colloidal gold.

Regarding SL's method: just make sure the copper wire doesn't enter the water, or else you'll also get a dose of copper in your colloidal silver.

This post is for information purposes only. I am not taking a position endorsing one methodology over another, as my knowledge of Chemistry is currently less than rudimentary.

It’s true that promotional literature inherently has its self-serving side - and yet, we’ve all purchased products, now and then, from companies who had a great spiel… that happily coincided with a high quality product.

Colloidal silver + H2O2 + Clay

There is a section in the free eBook, “Upon a Clay Tablet” by Jason Eyton, that goes into the value of a Colloidal silver/Clay combination - a case in which [supposedly] the sum exceeds the value of the parts. This book is also a good resource for those interested in clay.

Interesting [5-page] thread from another forum entitled:

Monatomic silver, and properly -'charged'- one of the true philospoher's stone(s)

[And, yes, *** is mentioned in passing but not as having had anything to do with this process]

Hi Albion, could we get a quick rundown of what was mentioned in that thread?

Sorry, Aleilius, but I'm not sure when I'd have the opportunity to do that.

I have only read through the thread once and made the link here based primarily on my intuitive read of the OP, and the feedback he received. He may well be mistaken in some conclusions or interpretations [please feel free to point them out], but I don't get the sense he is merely blowing smoke. So, I felt the thread might be of use to someone, and that it would be appropriately placed here - perhaps even in counterbalance to my previous post. Otherwise, I'm caught up in full-time attention to another matter [which may go on unabated for an undetermined period of time] and am not able, or willing, to split my focus.

Ah, no worries then. I'll have a looksie myself I suppose.

Quick tip: try making colloidal silver with the water's temperature as near its freezing point as possible.

Since reading this thread, I have started messing a bit more with low voltage "colloidal" silver production. With my latest setup, the cathode gets slowly coated with a different color than the normal silver/gray.

You need pure silver wire, distilled water and DC voltage source

then you will only be making silver oxide particles!
although a lot of people call that collodial silver, that is not really what it is.

true collodial silver is metallic silver, not oxide.

but still, to make your own collodial silver (metallic silver) is not that hard!

I have made some collodial gold and was surprised how easy it is!
