silver (metal) (<silver and silver alloy>, nonferrous metal, ... Materials (Hierarchy Name))

 

Note: Pure metallic element having symbol Ag and atomic number 47; a malleable, ductile, white metal with characteristic sheen, considered a precious metal. Silver is widely distributed throughout the world, occurring rarely as metallic silver (in Peru, Norway) but more often as silver-gold alloys and silver ore. Today silver is obtained as a byproduct in the refinement of gold, lead, copper, or zinc ores. Silver was smelted from the ore galena as early as 3800 BCE. As a pure metal, silver is second to gold in malleability and ductility, can be polished to a highly reflective surface, and used -- typically in an alloy -- in jewelry, coinage, photography, mirrors, electrical contacts, and tableware.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Te gebruiken voor het zuivere metaalelement met het symbool Ag en het atoomnummer 47. Het metaal is smeedbaar, vervormbaar en wit van kleur met een kenmerkende glans en wordt als edel beschouwd. Ook te gebruiken voor dit metaal wanneer het wordt bewerkt en gevormd om, meestal in combinatie met andere stoffen, diverse voorwerpen en materialen te maken. 
Spanish ..... Úsese para el elemento metálico puro con símbolo Ag y número atómico 47; un metal blanco maleable y dúctil, con un brillo característico, considerado un metal precioso. Úsese también para este metal procesado y conformado, habitualmente en combinación con otras sustancias para realizar diversos objetos y materiales.
