Silver is the white metal named after the Anglo-Saxon word “seolfor” or “siolfur” (from Latin argentum). It has high electrical and thermal conductivity, and is used for silver-plated silverware, ornaments, jewelry, and coinage.

Its stable isotope silver iodide (AgI) is also a common chemical compound and has been used in cloud seeding for artificial rainmaking, as well as in antiseptics. It is also found in certain photographic printing papers and films.

Throughout the ages, silver has been in demand for its unique properties: it has a high hardness and resists deformation and oxidation. It can be alloyed with various elements, including nickel and palladium, to enhance its strength and ductility.

The chemical compounds of silver include silver chloride (AgCl), silver bromide (AgBr), and silver iodide (AgI). These salts are widely used in photography as the light-sensitive medium for photographic printing papers and films, in certain cloud seeding materials, and in some antiseptics.

Silver ores have been discovered in the United States, Canada, France, Norway, and Russia. They are usually derived from base-metal ores that contain silver at a trace to several thousand troy ounces per ton of a copper, lead, or zinc concentrate.
