Have been shopping for gold chloride. Is anyone aware of a price less than 13 dollars a gram?
Aggie said:As for aqua regia I am well aquainted with that stuff. Very nasty stuff. Thats whey it is kept in glass bottles with glass stoppers to make sure the fumes done eat the caps of other containers. You're right I don't want to mess with it without a good hood. One better than a cardboard one that I can jerry rigg here. Oh well I just trade in the scrap for more sheet.
I believe the ounce used for precious metals is the Troy ounce which is 31.1 grams.ann said:That is sweet of Aggie to attempt to become a high end chemist, but not necessary. At one time, about a year ago gold cholride could be found for about 7 dollars a gram. Just thought I would give it a try.
The 13 dollar price is determined by purchasing an ounce of gold cholride; price depends on the market price, which changes from hour to hour (almost). When I talked to the source it was $362 an ounce. An ounce contains 28.35 grams of gold. Sure beats $40 dollars a gram.
Appreciate folks looking into this for me.

Ian Grant said:$13 per gm is actually very reasonable.
I went from being a Photographic Chemist in 1986 to being a precious metal refiner and have 18 years experience of Gold refining, many kilos of fine gold per day
Your price of $13 is actually well below the norm for laboratory grade Gold Chloride.
