To Give Silver The Colour Of Gold

Dissolve in common aqua fortis as much silver as you please. To eight

ounces of silver, take four ounces of hepatic aloes, six ounces of

turmeric, and two ounces of prepared tutty, that has been several

times quenched in urine. Put these to the solution of the silver; they

will dissolve, but rise up in the glass like a sponge; this glass must

therefore be large, to prevent running over. Then draw it off, and you

will have ten ounces of silver as yellow as gold.
