Silver is another of man's favorite minerals. People have considered it valuable for thousands of years because it is very similar to gold. Although it's color is different, it is a beautiful shiny metal that has many uses and is hard to find. There is a lot more silver on earth and it's easier to find, so people won't pay as much for it as they do for gold.

Silver is a fairly soft metal that is easily shaped, or malleable. It is a heavy grey white mineral with a high metallic luster. People have been using silver to make coins, jewelry and many other ornaments for thousands of years.
