Genuine Silver Leaf and Genuine Patent Silver is 100% pure Silver. Each pack of leaf contains 20 books. Each book contains 25 lvs, with a total of 500 leaves. Each leaf is 3 3/8" x 3 3/8" square. Approx. coverage is 39 sqft per pack and 1.7 sqft for each book. We offer a variety of gram weights to suit the needs of your specific project. Gram weight is determined by the weight of 1000 leaves of 3 3/8 inch square Silver leaf. This relates more to 'density' of leaf rather than thickness. Each leaf is beaten to approx. 0.5 microns thick. Whether you purchase European Silver leaf or chinese, the size (3 3/8" sq) and thickness (0.5 microns) is standard. The wieght changes by the amount of Silver content per leaf. So a Chinese Silver leaf weighs 17 grams per 1000 lvs, and is therefore less dense than an Italin Silver leaf, weighing 20 grams. The European leaf will be firmer, is less likely to tear and may show less wrinlkling in the final product (depending on your gilding technique).
