Argentium Sterling Silver is now available in casting grain. From Peter Johns, the developer: At present the 970 is only available in casting grain and at the moment only one company to my knowledge is selling it, but I think this will soon change.  I believe that when people start to understand the 970 they will soon realise how revolutionary it is, very low copper but it can be easily made harder than standard sterling.
