I was just doing some online searches for silver nitrate crystals and 1% gold chloride solution and I found that the prices can vary widely.  $30-54 for 100 mls for the Au and .60 -.99 per gram for the silver.

With the silver nitrate, the purity affects the price a lot but doesn't seem to be a big difference in terms of purity. 

My question to the group is, does a purity difference of 99.99% vs 99.995% make enough of a difference for albumen printing?  My guess is that it doesn't but I wanted to check with the experts first!  This purity difference makes a $30 difference in the price of 100 grams of AgNO3.

Also, has anyone had any experience with saltlakemetals.com?
