Is rhodium magnetic?
(-----) February 9, 2008
Is rhodium magnetic? if you get enough rhodium plating on gold to turn it white gold it will be picked up by a magnet.for which this is not silver.so if magnet picks up gold is because there is a lot of rhodium on it.now I wonder to first question .is there nickel in the rhodium liquid?or is rhodium magnetic?

Rhodium is not magnetic, Marty, and there is no nickel metal in rhodium plating solutions. However, it is not unusual to electroplate nickel onto the object before plating rhodium onto it, and nickel is magnetic.
