Hey! It’s Katie here and right now I’m going to teach you a cool trick about gold and silver. Now it involves make-up. So you guys are going to have to go out and at least borrow your girlfriends make-up or your mother’s make-up. or buy make-up at the store. which, you know, if you do, i want to here about it. What was your experience buying make-up for the first time. You need like a little foundation. It doesn’t have to be like, it could be
face powder any kind of face powder. And you take it and you put it like on your arm. And just brush it on your arm like this. Now this will tell you if something has silver-plate, if it’s gold-plated and usually you can tell what kind of karat it is. A little bit, just a little bit. Now obviously the biggest thing you want to do is have a magnet with you so you can really test to see if it’s gold. Now this, as you can see, Is not real gold. So when I rub it on my arm. It leaves a little bit of darkness on it but not much at all. Now when I put a 14 karat earring and rub it on my arm you see a mark. And obviously this isn’t attracted to the magnet. Now the same thing applies for silver except some stuff is silver-plated. Like right here you can tell this earring is not sterling silver. But I do believe it is silver-plated because it will leave a mark. And I can’t tell if that’s showing because my
web cam is freaking out on me. There you go. Then I have a silver, a sterling silver ring. And you test that. You can tell it definitely leaves a really really dark mark. So that helps me identify that this is sterling silver as opposed to silver-plated. And I don’t know if you like magic tricks but there’s definitely a way to make a magic trick out of this. If you have a half dollar. A Kennedy half dollar that is old enough this one’s 1967. They actually have silver in them. They’re not just like an alloy. And you can always pretend that you have magical powers like magical skin. And you know test it on somebody and be like, aww you don’t have magical powers because look at that. There’s no mark. And then when you show it on yours. Be like, ahh look at that I have magical powers Anyway, that’s pretty cool. It’s just something you might want to keep in mind Sometimes I go places and actually put make-up on my arms It’s weird. I know that some people look at me weird because I’m scratching like a fork on my arm. I don’t really know how to explain that. So sometimes I try and see if stuff is silver-plated and I’ll be like taking a fork and be like this You know that doesn’t look really good. But it, it’s helpful and it definitely is
