it is my understanding the process or gold livering is reversible by returning to a high temperature which redissolves the gold particles. Is this correct?

Also, if I wanted to work with a most beautiful and usable gold glass that is phosphate based, and no-lead, how might I locate a recipe to start with.

There are three important things in the receiving batch, Gold , lead and selenium.
