Silver has been used for centuries as a form of currency and in jewelry due to its fundamental properties, relative rarity, and shimmering appearance. Silver is malleable and can be easily shaped into different forms without breaking or cracking. Silver is also a relatively dense metal, though less dense than gold, making it perfect for industrial applications. Lastly, silver is highly conductive, giving it many industrial uses, such as in electronics and electrical components.

Silver’s combination of physical properties, rarity, and perceived value makes it a sought-after precious metal with both industrial and monetary applications.
