Hi Guys  Waveing

Well I did not find this today but I did re find it in my bag of junk yesterday after it having been there for a few months. The question is do you think that it could be gold? I know gold but this ones got me and with out a testing kit on hand I'm lost on this one.

All the best  By the way sorry for the lousy photos. I will try harder next time I promise.

Gold for Sure!    Locket, Watch?   No Idea what the Base metal is.   Heavy Gold Plate or Filled.

Any way to get a photo of the Transition between Metals?

Well there is a hard brittle substance on part of the inside. I know that I've seen this stuff somewhere but I just don't seem to be able to remember where. I will try and take a better photo with the inside part. Ha I think that I remember it was on a locket that had a stone mounted on the front of it. OK will take that photo

Well a locket it is then the broken part would have been where the hinge was.

OK! Some one is going to dispute this butt I think it is Heavy Gold Fill on Silver.

See the Blue?

Silver turns blue to Colbolt when Sulfided.

Yes I do see it. The inside has small scratches on it yet all I did was to clean it with a tooth brush to get the dirt out of it under running water. I guess that this locket must be pretty old?

Any marks left on the inside?   You didn't photo the Inside.

That is the inside mate but I can take another photo of the outside if you like and by the way  have found no stamp whatsoever on it.

Posted on: July 16, 2012, 08:31:35 PM
OK here is another photo of the front. It looks as though it is worn and silver if you look at the right hand side yet if I look at it with the magnifying glass this is not there so could be an effect from the light.
