Ball canning jars decorative purple.jpgMake and Store Your Colloidal Silver in These Dark-Glass Ball Canning Jars


A lot of people tell me they have trouble finding dark-colored glass wide-mouthed one-quart jars for making and storing colloidal silver and keeping it out of bright light. 


I absolutely love these decorative colored glass Ball Canning jars.  They work perfectly for both making and storing colloidal silver.  And this is apparently the last year they’ll be available (i.e., 2016), so if you like them, too, it’s time to stock up on them. 


I don’t sell them.  But the link to order them online from FreshPreservingStore or from Amazon is in the article below…


Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge


If you're looking for one-quart dark-colored glass jars for making and storing colloidal silver, the decorative one-quart, wide-mouthed Ball Canning jars in deep purple color are on sale online at FreshPreservingStore and at Amazon for about $2 apiece when you buy the six-pack. (I have no financial interest whatsoever in either of these two companies.)


The link for the jars at the FreshPreserving Store is here.

You can also find these same jars on Amazon at this link.


These dark-colored jars are not only beautiful, but they’re perfect for both making your homemade colloidal silver batches and for storing them, as well. The dark color keeps bright light off your colloidal silver batches, preventing oxidation of your silver particles.


According to the sellers, this is the last year the decorative colored Ball Canning jars will be available, as they were part of Ball's 100 year anniversary "Heritage Collection."


I like to keep lots of colloidal silver in storage.  In fact, I keep up to five gallons at a time, in quart jars.  So last year I purchased several 6-packs of these jars at Walmart when they were selling for only $1 per jar in cases of 12.


However, they sold out at Walmart very fast because of their collector's value, and it's been difficult to find them again at a decent price. I've seen some people selling them individually for $4, $5, $6 and even $10 apiece on eBay and on Amazon, because of their collector's value.


Also, if you'd like, on Amazon you can purchase the white plastic lids to replace the metal lids that come on these one-quart Ball Canning jars. You can get eight plastic lids for $5.32, at this link.


The metal lids that come with the jars are just fine as long as you don't fill the jar all of the way up to the lid with colloidal silver.


That’s because when colloidal silver comes into contact with metal, the silver particles can gradually lose their electrical charge and will slowly fall out of suspension, coating the bottom of your storage jar. Replacing the metal lids with plastic lids solves that potential problem.


If you can't afford the dark-colored one-quart glass jars at present, no big deal. To keep bright light off your colloidal silver, you can always take an old dark-colored men's sock and pull it up over your clear glass jar, as demonstrated shown in this article.


If you’re brand new to making and using colloidal silver and would like to learn more, consider starting with the article, A Colloidal Silver Primer. 


If you’d like to learn more about making your own colloidal silver for less than 36 cents a quart with a Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge, just click the link in this sentence.


Meanwhile, I’ll be back next week with another great article on colloidal silver….


Yours for the safe, sane and responsible use of colloidal silver,
