Thread: Green gold... without gold?

  1. #1

    Question Green gold... without gold?

    So... Now I have learned that there is an alloy of gold (green gold) composed of gold, silver and cadmium.
    And yes, it really is green.




    I would like to make an alloy of similar coloration, a green alloy (>pure alloy colour<, not by patina nor anodized), but without gold and, if possible, also without silver.

    By the way, I have already made the purple antimony bronze, it is not as satisfying as it seemed.

    Any help-diddly?

    P.S. Cadmium is really dangerous

    Well, I would like to make Filet Mignon and Lobster bisque, but I don't want to use any beef or lobster. I found out they call that bacon and eggs.

    Ive found out how to turn lead into gold. Takes alot of lead to get a small amount of gold.

    Sorry, I thought this forum was to talk about alloys.

    I have nothing to to add that hasn't already been posted in one of your other threads about alloys with unusual colours. Guessing the others in this one were simply having a little more fun than me saying about the same thing... And perhaps also suggesting they don't think you'll find what you're looking for.

    An interesting topic though, good luck with it.

    Its just that what you are looking to do is outside the normal realm of this forum. Someone may come along that has the knowledge and experience to help you, but we mostly alloy our metals to improve their mechanical properties and castability. What is it that you hope to make in the end?
