To easily and rapidly make unlimited quantities of good quality silver
colloid concentrate for $0.001 per gallon (plus water costs) you’ll
- Three 9V-type MN1604 regular alkaline transistor radio batteries;
- Three battery snap-on lead connectors;
- Two insulated alligator clips;
- One grain-to-wheat 24V-40mA subminiature incandescent bulb;
- One foot of 3/32" heat shrink insulation tubing;
- Ten inch piece of pure silver wire,
- One foot of 2-conductor stranded, insulated, twisted-wire clip
Use ONLY pure silver (.999 fine} electrodes. The preferred size
is 014 gauge (AWG). Pure silver is sometimes available at
electroplating supply companies, foundries precious metals dealers
WARNING! Do not use Sterling silver (.9275 or other);
Sterling contains copper and nickel. Nickel can be toxic. Sterling is
sometimes passed off for electrodes with commercial colloid makers
through ignorance or by entrepreneurs who are trying to cut comers and
save money. Discard them.
Use only distilled water for ingestible and injectable colloid. Tap
water is OK for most other uses.
This should cost a under maximum $20.00 for everything and take about
35 minutes to assemble from scratch. This design is “ idiot proof” and
simple to use. It makes an odorless, tasteless, colorless, fast and
powerful antiseptic and one of the most remarkable healing agents
known. The entire colloid making process takes about five minutes per
8-oz batch for ~6 ppm laboratory tested concentration.
- Use the three snap-on connector clips for the batteries and solder
them in series (red to black) to provide 27 volts.
- Connect a 24V incandescent lamp in series with either (positive or
negative) output load.
- Solder a red insulated alligator clip to the positive (anode) and
a black insulated clip to the negative (cathode) 2-conductor twisted
- Shrink insulation over soldered connections using a heat gun or
- Bend top ends of silver electrode wires to clip over rim of
plastic or glass container. Leave about 4 inches of bare electrodes
submerged in the working solution (water). Spacing between electrodes
is not critical.
The 24V 40mA miniature bulb acts as an ideal ballast, current drain
indicator current limiter and battery condition check for the
apparatus. I found aircraft grain-of-wheat lamps (Precision Lamp Inc.
part #10238) in surplus for $0.50 each. You can momentarily short-
circuit clip leads together without harm; the bulb will light brightly.
The visual brightness while operating gives an accurate indication of
There is no on-off switch, so the process starts immediately when
alligator clips are both attached to submerged wires. Process stops
when either or both clips are disconnected. If bulb glows visibly
proceed and let current flow for about five minutes then remove
alligator clips stir and you're done!
If bulb doesn't light or you see only a faint reddish glow add sea-salt
solution. Observe the smoke-like plumes of pure white ultra fine grain
silver against a dark background as colloid electrolytically sinters
off the anode (positive polarity side of battery red lead) and drifts
Five minutes activation of about 8-oz of property conductive water
gives approximately 5 to 7 ppm (parts per million) strength. Yield
depends on water conductivity, surface area of electrodes, amount of
current and time. Approximately 5 minutes makes a stock solution which
can be diluted further to make a typical working solution.
I occasionally put electrodes in my coffee, fruit and vegetable juice,
tap water and other drinks to charge them with colloid directly. I even
treated a mug of Anchor Steam Beer to see if it worked—it did, but it's
best to charge water by itself and add it to other foods/fluids as
desired or drink it directly. Overdosing with any amount is considered
Sea Salt Solution Preparation
With distilled or de-ionized (high resistance) water you should stir in
a very minute amount (1 or 2 drops) no more of dissolved sea salt
preferably; Celtic Golden Marine (brand) available at health food
stores. Do not use table salt since it contains additives
like iodine, aluminum, or silica desiccators, etc.
Too much salt (3 drops) NaCl can produce unwanted silver chloride and
give a dishwater appearance. Prepare a saturated solution of sea salt
beforehand, filter and store inn a 1- or 2-oz brown drugstore
eyedropper bottle (add a little colloid to your bottle to prevent
Stir a drop of the salt solution into any high-resistance water. The
bulb should show just a dim reddish glow. Salt must be added BEFORE
Clean electrode wires after each use to remove the dark oxide. This
occurs on the anode because the oxygen (produced electrolytically)
oxidizes silver. Use a small piece of ¼-in thick nylon Scotchbright™
kitchen scouring pad to polish dried silver, then wipe with paper
napkin to make ready for next use.
A fresh set of 3 alkaline batteries will make hundreds of 8-oz batches
of five minute silver colloid before battery replacement becomes
necessary. Periodically check batteries by momentarily short-circuiting
tips of alligator clips together to observe whiteness and intensity of
light. When bulb appears significantly dimmer or looks yellowish after
time replace all three alkaline batteries. Pry snap connectors off tape
3 new cells together and replace snap-on dips. Be VERY careful not to
crush or damage the fragile little lamp.
Checking Colloid Concentration and Purity
Colloid concentration and purity is readily checked by viewing the
backscatter of a laser beam as it passes through your finished solution
(Tyndall/Rayleigh effect). Use a 1 to 5 milliwatt laser diode pointer
(630 to 670 nanometer wavelength) that makes a small spot at several
feet—not just a light emitting diode.
Look into the beam at about a 15 degree angle. (Point beam through
solution so spot hits your chin or lips. Never look directly at
the source, this can injure your eyes.)
Laser pointers retail for about $30.00 at some computer or parts
outlets such as Fry's Electronics. Surprisingly the inexpensive pointer
from Radio Shack does not perform satisfactorily for this
particular application—the other models (~$69) will.
Make and store only in electrically nonconductive containers such as
dark brown glass or plastic such as prune juice bottles or hydrogen
peroxide containers never in metal.
There is no need to stir during processing however stirring or shaking
is essential before storing and each time before using. Filtering is
generally unnecessary. Don’t add preservatives minerals EDTA, proteins,
gelatin coloring (some makers add yellow dye to make it appear golden)
or any other substance.
Stir your fresh batch with a plastic (nonconductive) fast-food
disposable knife and store in a dark brown container. KEEP AWAY FROM
LIGHT as even room light will degrade colloids rapidly by turning
solution gray or black just as exposure to light darkens the silver in
camera film. Light can also neutralize positive charges on silver ions
that help keep particles in suspension. Keep colloids cool but do not
refrigerate or let freeze.
ALWAYS SHAKE CONTAINER THOROUGHLY EACH TIME BEFORE
It purchased at market prices commercial colloids could cost up to
$80.00 for 8 OZ of generally vastly inferior products. Most available
colloids on today’s market when evaluated prove to be practically
worthless. (At a recent health expo. In my opinion out of eight brands
tested only two were found to be adequate in quality suspension and
content. Many contained additives such as EDTA coloring and gelatin for
This article describes an easy way for anyone to make his own for only
a small fraction of a penny. It seems ridiculous to buy it at high
prices. You can now afford to use colloids universally such as in
laundry water for sterilization as a disinfectant spray rinse for fruit
and vegetables, fungicide, bactericide, plant spray, pet health
assurance, and hundreds of other applications. Drinking dilute silver
colloid safely kills over 650 pathogens, viruses, microbes, fungi, and
parasites within minutes. Side effects are unknown and resistant
strains of disease-causing pathogens never develop.
Multi-level entrepreneurs will believe that their colloid is “better,
finer particle size, purer, longer suspension, more golden, made by
some top secret proprietary process, or other rationalizations to
justify outrageous prices. Just offer to test both at an independent
laboratory. This do-it-yourself process makes a perfectly adequate
colloid with a 2-year track record of excellent
