The tested object is rubbed on the surface using a touchstone, so as to draw a line (a certain pressure is exerted in order to reach its innermost part). By the preliminary visual analysis of the present stamps the caliber is determined, consequently the corrispondening acid for the caliber is used.

The moment in which this line on the stone will resist the action of the acid, remaining bright and not deleting itself, we will have the certainty that the object in question is golden. To determine whether the object’s nucleus also contains the same metal percentages a magnet is used. In this case the object will not be attracted by the force of the magnet.
