The gold assaying and silver melting processes are very similar to the process of assaying black sand into Rhodium and Irridium. The equipment is the same. I observed several anomalies during these new and early assay attempts. I believe that these four anomalies all have the same cause, which is that these new metals are not fully converted from the Ormus state. The first anomaly is the disappearance of the first two beads overnight, the second is that two beads occurred during the cupelling process and the third is that these assays seem to be producing two different metal beads in the same assaying experiment -- usually, in conventional assays, they alloy into one compound bead. I have not heard of any of these things happening before in the typical assay process. Finally, the specific gravity of these new "metals" is quite low when compared to the type of platinum group metals I believe them to be. My explanation for the observations above is that the metal beads that formed in two distinct shapes that were separate from each other, in the bottom of the cupel, were only partly converted Ormus materials.
