Silver is a chemical element, numbered 47 on the Periodic Table, and is one of the classical precious metals, along with gold and platinum. Silver has been used for millennia in creating fine jewelry, art, and as currency. In nature it is usually alloyed with ores of copper, copper-nickel, or lead, and it is then separated out and purified. Most fine silver is at least 99.9% silver, and even high-grade silver is upwards of 99.999% silver. while sterling silver is pure silver which has other metals added, usually around 7.5% copper.
