Zinc oxide forming on the walls of the distillation flask like snow PHILOSOPHICAL MERCURY:
Place the crystals in a distillation flask, and heat until a white fog appears. This is acetone and zinc fumes. If you use too much zinc acetate, more smoke will be created than your condenser can handle, so don't use too much at once. It's essential to keep the condensers cold with ice water. The fog will condense into a golden water, and zinc oxide flowers will form on the condenser walls. After it's all done, the zinc in the distillation flask will be ashes, and will smell aweful. Pour the liquid from the reciever flask back into the distillation flask with the zinc, and redistill. Do this several times. Then wash out the condenser and attachment arm with the golden water solvent. You will see a small amount of red oil form on the surface of the solvent. Collect and save this. It is the Philosophical Mercury which dissolves gold without violence. It is red, just like metallic mercury is when in a vacuum like a thermometer. It is the only chemical which dissolves gold, yet can be touched by the human skin without harm. It's a special form of mesityl oxide created by the condenstation reaction of the acetone fumes.
That's where I'm at on wet path.

This is your personal experience?

Thats interesting about the change to red and dissolving gold. what would happen if you distilled the dissolved gold?

No this is purely academic. From information that I gathered. I don't have enough of a setup to fully execute wet path.

I don't recommend you do anything with zinc. The white smoke which is volatile zinc, can kill you!. The symptoms are flu-like and you will die soon after that! Ask any metal worker who works with brass can tell you this.

Also- is the guy "seasalt" Steve School? He seems intent on promoting him!
