Bright to gray in color, silver, in addition to being decorative is highly ductile, malleable, and solderable. It possesses superior thermal, and electrical conductive properties (matte finish being the best conductor; bright, the worst). Additionally, it is very corrosive resistant to atmospheric oxygen although susceptible to tarnish by atmospheric silfides and nitrates.
