What is Silver?
Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and is sometimes referred to as pure silver. Sterling silver will tarnish over time but with care and regular cleaning can be restored to its good as new sparkling condition. The remaining 7.5% is usually copper but can be other metal and is used to give this precious metal strength and durability.
Generally, the higher the silver content the brighter or whiter the metal but beware of antiquing effects that can make a piece of sterling silver jewellery or decorative silverware look dark. Silver which is 99.9% silver is too soft to be practical for most day to day uses. Do not use tissue or anything other than a jewellery cleaning cloth to polish your jewellery as unseen tiny hard fibers will scratch the surface.
Popularity of the Indian Silver Jewellery
It might surprise people to find out that the Elements Class contains minerals that are composed of more than one element. Popularity of the Indian Silver Jewellery is associated with the elegance and versatility of it. The most difficult to classify are the metal/non-metal mineral combinations. Elements, by the chemical definition are composed of all the same atoms; whereas substances composed of two or more elements are compounds.
These minerals, which combine metals such as iron with the very non-metallic elements of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorous and silicon, are quite unique and quite rare. But the sulfides class is by convention limited to sulfur and semi-metal combinations as discussed above. They are not too different from sulfides which typically combine metals with sulfur.
