Difference Between Colloidal Silver and Ionic Silver 8

Share this:

It’s important to understand the difference between colloidal silver and ionic silver.

Colloidal Silver is small silver particles suspended in a liquid. These particles are stable and suitable for both external (skin) and internal use. This form of silver is the most beneficial to the body. Spooky2 can make true colloidal silver.

Ionic silver is silver atoms dissolved within a liquid. The atom size is much smaller than colloidal silver particles. Each atom is missing one electron, making them highly reactive. Ionic silver is converted into undesirable silver chloride when it encounters body salts, so may be suitable for external (skin) use only.

Marketing hype has created confusion. Most “colloidal silver” being sold and made is, in fact, more than 90% ionic silver which is only suitable for topical use. Once inside the body, it becomes ineffective. The particle size of ionic silver is one atom.

There are visible differences between colloidal silver and ionic silver. These drinking glasses contain two different batches of silver solution, each with roughly 15ppm silver concentration. The glass on the left was made using the old-fashioned direct current (battery) method. It has a high ionic content, no color, and is clear. Adding salt, however, will make it turn cloudy as the silver ions convert to silver chloride. The glass on the right has a high colloidal content and a golden hue. Adding salt will not alter its clarity. It was created over two days using very low current and the special Spooky2 waveform.

  1. What kind of wave form?

    1. Swap waveform every 300 seconds for instance to reverse current flow and the ability to set the runtime in advanced.

      1. I have the spooky generator and my silver comes out clear using the silver program provided. What am I doing wrong?

        1. Colloidal silver can be clear or slightly yellow. When it comes to colloidal solutions, the main parameters contributing to color change(plasmon) likely come down to particle type, size and density. Of which I’d add, the type parameter depends on whether one chooses to qualify ions as particles or not.

  2. I’m just learning about colloidal silver. I have a premade generator. All of my solutions are coming up between 1 and 5 for the most part, and color is clear to slight golden (usually the 4 and 5 ppm) on my TDS Meter. Am I reading this correctly? It’s 1 ppm? And is that better than say, 10 or 20ppm? thanks!

    1. We recommend you the 20 ppm.

  3. Thanks for your sharing. Yes, It’s hard to find the strength of CS. People often use a TDS meter. However, colloidal silver is silver particles that are suspended in solution – only silver ions are dissolved. So TDS meters will only measure the ionic silver strength, not the colloidal strength.

  4. Very true. It is hard to find the strength of a true colloid, as you would need a better equipment to measure than a TDS to see its strength.

    Another question I have: Research showed that silver atoms can carry oxygen very well and it is thus beneficial to ensure oxygenation of the liquid as the oxygen within the colloid will further increase the efficacy. What do you think of that?
