(UtopiaSilver.com) The questions asked about colloidal silver (which is actually particle silver) and ionic silver are too varied and numerous to list them all. Often the questions asked are from the perspective of one who doesn’t understand the difference between particle silver and ionic silver. Those familiar only with ionic silver usually presume that any labeled as “colloidal silver” must be clear. There are even so-called experts and silver producers who make this claim. The truth is a “colloid” is a suspension of very small particles in a liquid medium held in that suspended state by Brownian motion. If a product is really colloidal silver, it will have color, because it will consist of particles and particles reflect light causing the eyes to perceive color. On the other hand ionic silver is clear because it consists of silver ions rather than particles and therefore do not reflect light. Here is a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about ionic and colloidal silver.
