    Have you tested any Moroccan pottery? Ours tested negative with a 3M test swab but I’m curious about the XRF!

      Some, I think. Do you have a picture you can share? Or a brand?

    what if the pottery or item from Mexico says LEAD FREE? could it still contain lead or other heavy metals? thanks

      I have tested quite a bit of Mexican pottery that was marked “lead free” and it is often very high lead, unfortunately. I have a new one to post from a few months ago – I will try to get you that link a.s.a.p.
