Silver bars a generally combined with copper or other metals to give the silver a much harder state. Silver bars are most commonly used in the financial business for longterm physical investments.
Since silver is the highest conductivity rate of all the metals, it is sometimes used in circuitry for technology like computers, calculators, cell phones and more.
Bright future with investments in Silver
Silver, found in nature, can come in nuggets, veins in rocks, or mixed in with other metals. Silver is stable in oxygen and water, but tarnishes when exposed to sulfur compounds in air or water to form a black sulfide layer. It was also one of the first give metals known to man, and it is still around today. So, as long as silver is kept in proper conditions, it should last a lifetime!
Silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity rate of all the metals. If there was ever a lack in recourses, silver's value would skyrocket because it is so versatile. The silver could be used to barter for other goods or for any use that it can fulfill. If your looking for a long term investment that will be sure to pay off,silver is the way to go!
