Description: Silver is a soft, malleable metal with a characteristic silver sheen when polished. It is stable to water and oxygen but is slowly attacked by sulfur compounds in the air to form a black sulfide layer. Silver dissolves in H2SO4 and HNO3. The metal is used for silverware, jewelry, mirrors and in the electrical industry because of its excellent conductivity; silver salts are used in photography.
