    Lunar Influence on the Electrochemical Production of
    Colloidal Silver

    by Michael Theroux

    It is well known that the quality of homemade
    electrochemical colloidal silver varies with every
    batch made. While some of this variance can occur due
    to mechanical and/or operator malfunction, such as
    improper voltage due to low batteries, the use of
    impure waters (other than distilled), incorrect
    duration of electrode contact, etc., there are other
    factors which play an important role in producing high
    quality electrochemical silver colloids.

    The research work of Eugen and Lily Kolisko in the
    1920s and 30s introduced the idea that certain
    celestial events had a profound effect on metals, and
    that the ancient traditional relationships between
    specific metals and planets could be demonstrated via
    laboratory experiment. The process of these
    experiments involved placing cylinders of special
    filter paper into dishes which held measured amounts
    of the various metal salts. Then, the capillary
    patterns which subsequently emerged, could be studied
    with reference to specific solar system events (a
    complete detailed description of the experimental
    process is contained in the book, The Metal-Planet
    Relationship by Nick Kollerstrom, available from
    BSRF). Early on, the Koliskos observed the effects
    that the moon�s phases had on solutions of silver
    chloride, and that profound effects could be viewed
    during lunar eclipses.

    This information prompted the idea that lunar
    influence could produce exceptional differences in the
    quality of electrochemically produced colloidal
    silver. We immediately began preparing the necessary
    experimental equipment for the upcoming lunar eclipse
    (March 23, 1997, 8:45PM PST). Two CS-300 colloidal
    silver generators were used for the electrochemical
    process and a digital countdown timer would ensure
    that each batch ran for the exact prescribed time of
    20 minutes. The first and second of four batches were
    initiated just prior to, and during the eclipse, and
    the last two just after the eclipse. The electrodes
    were checked and cleaned before each batch was run to
    assure a consistent voltage throughout the
    experimental run. The water used was distilled and was
    provided from the same bottle, and then pre-measured
    into 8 oz. glasses of identical size and make. Normal
    batches of colloidal silver produced in this way yield
    a count of about 6000 to 8000 ppb (parts per billion)
    of silver.

    It had been noted with earlier batches of colloidal
    silver that a simple taste test easily detected
    differences in quality. Some batches would produce a
    heavy metallic taste, while others had no
    distinguishing differences from plain distilled water.
    After the eclipse experiment was completed, an initial
    taste test was conducted on the four batches. The
    first batches run just before and during the eclipse
    were perceptually absent of the characteristic
    metallic taste usually associated with a strong batch
    of colloidal silver. The two batches after the eclipse
    proved very metallic in taste. These samples along
    with a control were then taken to a local lab for
    analysis. The results shown in Figure 1 indicate that
    the amount of silver began to decrease nearing the
    eclipse, with a reduction to 1900 ppb during the
    eclipse. The last batch revealed a rise toward normal

    This data strongly suggests a lunar influence on the
    electrochemical production of colloidal silver. But,
    the lunar influece presides over other factors which
    are a part of the experimental test setup. Most are
    familiar with the lunar effect on tides, and going
    back into the distant past, many understood that the
    moon exerts a powerful influence on water itself.
    Folklore and fact abound with tales of lunar influence
    upon water, moisture, and other liquids. Plutarch
    instructed that the full moon caused such an increase
    in moisture that it made timber, wheat, and other
    grains which were cut at this time more likely to
    become decayed and rotten. If cut at the new moon,
    they would be dry and brittle.

    The medieval medical practise of bleeding was to be
    governed according to lunar phases and their attendant
    proportions of moisture. Dr. E. J. Andrews, in 1960,
    confirmed that bleeding is worse around full moons
    than at any other time. Thousands of post-op records
    were compared to the dates of lunar phases showing a
    remarkable 82 percent of post-op bleeding episodes
    occurred on or around the full moon. Several other
    researchers and doctors would confirm his findings.

    The medicinal effects of many folk remedies were also
    governed by the phases of the moon due to fluctuating
    moisture content. Bread was said to rise and leaven
    better during a full moon, owing to a better retention
    of moisture. There is a vast catalog of such
    correspondences between the moon and water, and more
    still with recent scientific investigations. G.
    Piccardi, a pioneer on water structure and water
    activation, demonstrated that cosmic energy forces are
    important factors in the modification of standardized
    laboratory chemical and phase-change experiments. He
    also discovered a dynamic and energetic movement to
    the Earth�s path in orbit that corresponds to seasonal

    The moon is not without its effects on electricity and
    electrical conductivity. Variations have been recorded
    in the electrostatic strength of the atmosphere caused
    by lunar-phase influenced fluctuations in ionization.
    H.S. Burr discovered that the electrical potential of
    trees climaxed during full moons, and was unrelated to
    fluctuations in barometric pressure, humidity, or the
    weather. The only outside influence the tree�s
    electrical potential fluctuation kept pace with was
    that of the changing phases of the moon. L. Ravitz
    found that people also possessed peaks of potential
    difference in accord with full and new moons. E.K.
    Bigg observed over an 81 year period that magnetic
    storms peaked in intensity just after full moons, and
    were lightest around new moons. Disturbances in the
    earth�s magnetic field have been found to follow lunar

    It is obvious that these associations indicate that
    the entire process of the electrochemical production
    of colloidal silver is ruled by lunar influence. For
    that matter, all chemical processes are inextricably
    directed by celestial authority. It is essential to
    understand then, when the most propitious times occur
    to conceive these suspensions. With respect to the
    production of colloidal silver, lunar influence tables
    must be consulted. We know that tides are a direct
    manifestation of lunar forces, but there are also
    atmospheric tides which play an important role in the
    understanding of how the moon affects chemical
    reactions. D�Alembert, in 1746, was the first to
    discover lunar tides in the earth�s atmosphere.
    Atmospheric tides attend daily and monthly lunar
    cycles similar to ocean tides. High tide is observed
    when the moon is directly overhead or on the exact
    opposite side of the earth. This is called upper and
    lower transit respectively, or “souths” and “norths”.
    The highest atmospheric tide can be measured as air
    pressure, and occurs at lower transit every day. These
    daily high tides peak twice a month at new and full
    moons. The highest tides occur when the full or new
    moon is at perigee (closest approach to the earth),
    and higher still when the new or full moon at perigee
    crosses the ecliptic, or geometrical plane formed by
    the path of the earth�s orbit.

    From a quantitative viewpoint, these tides are
    extremely small causing the barometer to rise only
    .001 inches in a day. This influence is location
    dependant, and may be as much as three times higher
    near he equator as it is in middle latitudes. This
    still seems too quantitatively minuscule to have any
    effect on silver electrodes in an 8 oz. glass of

    Here we must turn to the work of John Alden Knight. In
    the mid 1920s, while fishing with a friend, he was
    told about the folkloric “moon-up/moon-down” theory.
    The basic premise is that fish feed only at certain
    times of the day, and that the best times could be
    found when the moon was either “southing” or
    “northing”. Knight went on to develop this theory over
    the next few decades into what is now known as the
    “Solunar” (combining Sun and Moon) theory. Of course,
    this theory didn�t just apply to fish, and he would
    discover that animals, including humans, would become
    more active and have more energy at these times than
    at all other times of the day. One might wonder why
    they wake up in the middle of the night full of energy
    only to consult the tables Knight created, and find
    that a Solunar period was in progress. These periods
    last anywhere from 1� to 3 hours dependant on the
    moon�s relationship to other celestial processes.
    Minor Solunar periods are indicated during the rising
    and setting times of the moon, and Major periods are
    indicated during the two transits. These periods are,
    of course, location dependant, and Knight has created
    tables which are available for every major fishing
    location in the country (see references). The easiest
    way to roughly calculate this for yourself is to add 6
    hours to the rise and set times for the moon. If you
    are connected to the Internet, you can obtain moon
    rise and set times for your local area for the entire
    year by going to the Naval Observatory�s website at
    Once you have these, simply add 6 hours to the daily
    rise or set time to find the major periods.

    These appear to be the best times for the production
    of colloidal silver. If on a new or full moon, even
    better. Although we haven�t had lab tests done on
    every batch (the cost is $40 per sample), taste tests
    and light yellow color confirm a fairly good batch
    every time they have been made during major Solunar
    periods. Minor periods produce a somewhat fair batch,
    and in-between times have consistently yielded a poor
    quality colloid.

    Other moon factors to consider are high and low
    runs/rides, and the traditional full moon names. When
    the moon “Runs High”, or “Rides Low” on the equator,
    this refers to how high the moon is in the sky that
    day. The moon is always highest for that day when it
    souths, but its height above the southern horizon at
    southing varies during the month. It�s at its highest
    above the horizon when it souths on a “Runs High” day.
    It�s at its lowest on a “Rides Low” day, which happens
    about two weeks later. On the celestial equator, the
    moon is about halfway between these extremes and this
    occurs twice during the month. This is caused by the
    interaction of the moon�s phases and the seasons. For
    the Northern hemisphere the midsummer full moon is
    always low in the sky, whereas the midwinter full moon
    is nearly overhead.

    The traditional names of the full moons for each month
    of the year represent the qualities possessed by each
    individual moon. For example, “Harvest Moon” in
    September was said to be responsible for the ripening
    of produce. To the Romans, Diana�s day fell at the
    time of the Harvest Full Moon, and offerings were made
    to her at this time to ensure the ripening of their
    fruits. Some of the names associated with each month�s
    full moon are derived from the traditional Algonquin
    Native American or Colonial Full Moon Names as

    January Wolf Moon, Old Moon, Winter Moon, Yule Moon.
    February Snow Moon, Hunger Moon, Trapper�s Moon.
    March Worm Moon, Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Sap Moon.
    April Pink Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon, Fish Moon, Egg
    oon, Planter�s Moon.
    May Flower Moon, Corn Plant Moon, Milk Moon.
    June Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, Honey Moon, Hot Moon.
    July Buck Moon, Thunder Moon, Summer Moon, Hay Moon.
    August Sturgeon Moon, Red Moon, Green Corn Moon, Dog
    Days Moon, Wood Cutter�s Moon.
    September Harvest Moon, Fruit Moon, Dying Grass Moon.
    October Hunter�s Moon.
    November Beaver Moon, Frosty Moon.
    December Cold Moon, Long Nights Moon.

    While this is fascinating from the standpoint of
    folklore, no correlations have yet been made between
    these full moon names and their respective qualitative
    influences. The Solunar theory seems to hold true at
    all times of the year, but can be slightly altered by
    these other factors, and delicate adjustments to your
    tables (plus or minus a maximum of 45 minutes) would
    then be in order.

    As you become familiar with these Solunar periods, you
    will also begin to notice how many other daily events
    are directed by the moon�s influence. Once the
    connection has been made, there is no turning back,
    and many new discoveries concerning celestial
    influences will surely appear in time. The practical
    benefits of these correspondences are starting to
    reveal themselves to us in many ways, and hopefully
    will point us in the direction of a greater quality of
    scientific endeavors.
