I got into purchasing gold and silver through private sales over the past year. I purchased all the lab equipment including a forge to refine silver and gold. It did cost a bit of money but the science of refining was very appealing. I’ve yet to refine any of my gold but I’ve refined silver via chemicals and then using an electrolysis process ending up with about a kilo of crystallized silver. Would anyone be able to tell me if the purified silver has a higher than spot price value and what could it be used for?
