So if I do buy a bottle or two of gold chloride to save a step here, any recommendations on where to buy? Amazon offer ones that range in price and percentage of gold. Does this one below look okay? It says 5% gold solution in a 50ml bottle, about 5g gold total weight I think it says. Also, why would I need to mix this with more hydrochloric when making the gold sands? It's not sufficient to just pour the little bottle over 500g silica and let that dry? Perhaps the extra HCl is for more even distribution throughout the silica?
