Jewelry Scams

Just returned from Marrakesh with a bracelet that was bought and "tested" for silver with one of those solutions that makes a marking on stone turn blue for silver. Here, in NYC was told that the bracelet was in fact not silver at all. Am wondering what other solution could be used to falsif that result (silver)

The typical salt/acid mixture for metals testing turns blue for nickel. Silver turns red, brown or green depending on proof.
