My Silver Nitrate solution appears pretty much clear. It was made in 2006 and is in a small brown bottle which has been kept in the dark.

I'm curious about this Athenatype process. Could someone please tell me it's benefits over the kallitype/vandyke/argyrotype processes. Does it clear better and have better dmax? How does that work chemically?
Most of which I found has to do with the fumed silica aspect and not the actual process.
Thanks.
