To whom it may concern
I have a general inquiry and I do hope that you can help me with it.
I have with me two specimens of silver rods one from the US via Elixa.
the other from Germany via Saxonia.
The US rods 99.99% pure
Diameter 2mm. 7" long and are soft = (easily bendable by hand as if it it were soldering iron )
The German rods 99.99% pure
Diameter 2.49-2,51 mm 2" long
Tensile strength 359-372N/mm2 extremely hard = (totally UN-bendable by hand is if it were steel)
Both being of similar diameter @ 0.49-51mm greater with the German specimens and both claiming to be 99.99% pure with lab analysis test sheets.
Which one is the real deal?
I have read that pure silver if harder than gold ( I guess that's pure gold) however I am not confident to ingest something that could potentially harm me say one specimen was cut with nickle for example.
Both companies are extremely reputable.
I am pleading for someone to point me in the right direction.
Much thanks and gratitude
