I fix nitre with sea salt and charcoal until it no longer reacts and is a nice blue-green.
Then I leave it do deliquesce overnight and then top it off with water
and shake it up in a bottle and get precipitate which is then washed.

I had a curious idea to try adding 3% hydrogen peroxide instead of water in a small sample batch.
Curiously, it produced a red-orange precipitate which I have no explanation for.
In this pic, you can compare it to the green tincture (water, not alcohol).

This reddish color sinks and leaves the green tincture.
I know that pH swings can produce lots of colors and adding H2O2 raises the alkalinity
and causes a reaction that lasts for a day or so - fizzing.
I'm curious to try both and compare them.
