Description: Silver is used in food to give a metallic surface colour. However prolonged consumption may lead to argyria, a blue-grey skin but is not dangerous. The greatest source of silver now is as a by product in the manufacture of non-ferrous metals such as Copper, Lead, Zinc.

Silver is usually obtained from crushed silver bearing ore. The actual method of recovery from the ore depends on which metal is predominant in the ore but normally ends by electrolysis using one of two techniques, either the Moebius or Thum Balbach systems.

Silver is used extensively in the photographic industry, as well as in silverware and jewellery, electrically, for silvering mirrors and in batteries.
