CASE FINISHING
PERFECTION

ROLLED GOLD

TO MAKE ROLLED GOLD A SHEET OF GOLD AND A SHEET OF BASE METAL AND, SOME TIMES, ANOTHER SHEET OF GOLD ARE HEAT WELDED TOGETHER  IN OVENS, THEN THE "SANDWICHED" TRIPLE  SHEET IS PLACED IN ROLLING MILS WHERE IT IS FLATTENED TO CASE THICKNESS THEN CASES ARE STAMPED FROM THE SHEET.

CYANIDE BOMBING

DO NOT DO THIS. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS. WE ARE ONLY PROVIDING THE BASIC CONCEPT AND NOT THE PROCEDURE OR EQUIPMENT NECESSARY TO PERFORM THIS TASK. IT SHOULD ONLY BE ACCOMPLISHED UNDER STRICT CONTROLS, GUIDELINES, THE PROPER EQUIPMENT AND SOMEONE WITH EXPERIENCE. EXPENSIVE HIGH GLOSS GOLD JEWELRY SOLD IN HIGH END SHOPS UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE. THE ITEM REMAINS HIGH GLOSS UNTIL CASE REPAIRS, HIGH HEAT (LIKE REPAIRING A LUG) OR INTENSE BUFFING OCCURS. USING POLISHING CLOTHS WILL NOT HARM THE FINISH.

AFTER LIGHTLY POLISHING THE CASE, THE CASE IS SUBMERGED IN HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND THEN A CYANIDE SOLUTION IS ADDED. RESULTING IN AN "EXPLOSION" THAT REMOVES IMPURITIES, EXCESS SOLDER AND SOME OF THE GOLD. IN THE PROCESS, THE COPPER COLORING IS REDUCED.

NOTE: THE RESULTING LIQUID CANNOT BE "DUMPED", PLACED IN A DRAIN OR "THROWN OUT". IT MUST BE BROUGHT TO A GOLD REFINER.
