Melting Jewelry into a 1kg Silver Bar

Scrap Sterling Silver can be found quite cheap if you look around, 2nd hand stores can sometimes have trinket boxes of jewelry to look through, car boot sales, auction lots and even on ebay occasionally.

There’s different purities of silver jewelry and the best is 925 silver which is 92.5% of pure silver.

Here I melted just over 1kg of silver into an ingot, with the addition of 1oz of 9999 silver it should come up as just over 92.5% pure silver or more.

The spec’s of the furnace I use can be seen here..
