    What are you paying for Silver Nitrate crystals?

    I see the Formulary has 100g for about $300. I also see an eBay seller has 100g for $100. Anybody buying from the bay? What quantity/price do you normally buy?

    I get mine from Bostick and Sullivan. High quality, consistent quality, and dependable friendly people to deal with.

    100 grams to 200gm of Silver nitrate is $1.29/gram (At $129 for 100 grams, that is less than half of PF's prices). 200gm to 500gm is $1.17/gram. Over 500gm is $1.10/gram.

    I usually buy it 30 grams for $39 -- no extra shipping charges at this amount. Tho there was no extra charge when I last bought 50 grams from them.

    Check out Salt Lake Metals and Artcraft chemicals. Last time I checked, I think Artcraft was a bit cheaper.

    Artcraft's website currently says $112.75 for 100 grams.

    Shane, Where are you getting the Silver nitrate at $2.40 - $2.20 per gram? Saw Vanbar's price on the weekend. Wow!

    Goldstreet Studios, not sure about delivery but worth the drive to pick up and look at current exhibition.

    I would be interested to know why Vanbar has such very high prices right across the board. I won't even buy a single roll of film from them. $6.60 a gram forAgNO3!? You could probably source it from places like Melbourne Uni — if you're in 3Y Medicine...

    As for AgNO3, IIRC is it +200gm in half that amount of water for it to be 100% soluable? That sounds like a big premium in terms of cost...
