La description • Usages / Fonction

Silver has been known since ancient times. It is mentioned in Genesis. Slag dumps in Asia Minor and on islands in the Aegean Sea indicate thatman learned to separate silver from lead as early as 3000 B.C. Silver occurs native and in ores such as argentite (Ag2S) and horn silver (AgCl); lead,lead-zinc, copper, gold, and copper-nickel ores are principal sources. Mexico, Canada, Peru, and the U.S. are the principal silver producers in thewestern hemisphere. Silver is also recovered during electrolytic refining of copper. Commercial fine silver contains at least 99.9% silver. Purities of99.999+% are available commercially. Pure silver has a brilliant white metallic luster. It is a little harder than gold and is very ductile and malleable,being exceeded only by gold and perhaps palladium. Pure silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals, and possesses thelowest contact resistance. It is stable in pure air and water, but tarnishes when exposed to ozone, hydrogen sulfide, or air containing sulfur. The alloysof silver are important. Sterling silver is used for jewelry, silverware, etc. where appearance is paramount. This alloy contains 92.5% silver, theremainder being copper or some other metal. Silver is of utmost importance in photography, about 30% of the U.S. industrial consumption going intothis application. It is used for dental alloys. Silver is used in making solder and brazing alloys, electrical contacts, and high capacity silver-zinc andsilver-cadmium batteries. Silver paints are used for making printed circuits. It is used in mirror production and may be deposited on glass or metalsby chemical deposition, electrodeposition, or by evaporation. When freshly deposited, it is the best reflector of visible light known, but is rapidlytarnishes and loses much of its reflectance. It is a poor reflector of ultraviolet. Silver fulminate (Ag2C2N2O2), a powerful explosive, is sometimes formedduring the silvering process. Silver iodide is used in seeding clouds to produce rain. Silver chloride has interesting optical properties as it can be madetransparent; it also is a cement for glass. Silver nitrate, or lunar caustic, the most important silver compound, is used extensively in photography. Whilesilver itself is not considered to be toxic, most of its salts are poisonous. Natural silver contains two stable isotopes. Forty nine other radioactive isotopesand isomers are known. Silver compounds can be absorbed in the circulatory system and reduced silver deposited in the various tissues of the body.A condition, known as argyria, results, with a greyish pigmentation of the skin and mucous membranes. Silver has germicidal effects and kills manylower organisms effectively without harm to higher animals. Silver for centuries has been used traditionally for coinage by many countries of the world.In recent times, however, consumption of silver has at times greatly exceeded the output. In 1939, the price of silver was fixed by the U.S. Treasuryat 71¢/troy oz., and at 90.5¢/troy oz. in 1946. In November 1961 the U.S. Treasury suspended sales of nonmonetized silver, and the price stabilizedfor a time at about $1.29, the melt-down value of silver U.S. coins. The Coinage Act of 1965 authorized a change in the metallic composition of thethree U.S. subsidiary denominations to clad or composite type coins. This was the first change in U.S. coinage since the monetary system wasestablished in 1792. Clad dimes and quarters are made of an outer layer of 75% Cu and 25% Ni bonded to a central core of pure Cu. The compositionof the one- and five-cent pieces remains unchanged. One-cent coins are 95% Cu and 5% Zn. Five-cent coins are 75% Cu and 25% Ni. Old silver dollarsare 90% Ag and 10% Cu. Earlier subsidiary coins of 90% Ag and 10% Cu officially were to circulate alongside the clad coins; however, in practicethey have largely disappeared (Gresham’s Law), as the value of the silver is now greater than their exchange value. Silver coins of other countries havelargely been replaced with coins made of other metals. On June 24, 1968, the U.S. Government ceased to redeem U.S. Silver Certificates with silver.Since that time, the price of silver has fluctuated widely. As of January 1996, the price of silver was about $5.30/troy oz. (17¢/g); however the pricehas fluctuated considerably due to market instability. 1
