Silver is a metal. Its main use is as a component of black bronze. Silver can be used to create Tier 2 tools and equipment, but such tools have half the durability of their copper counterparts.
Silver can be found as native silver ore veins or, very rarely, through panning.
Silver is always found as native silver ore. Native silver ore can only be found in quartz or galena, an ore of lead.
Silver, once smelted, can be cast into molds or ingots. Silver tools are considered tier 2, on par with copper, but have significantly less durability. Similar to gold tools, the rarity of silver means that pure silver equipment should be considered mostly ornamental.
Silver plates can also be used to make lined lanterns. Unlined lanterns created from silver also gain a +1 luminosity bonus.
Silver ingots may be purchased by a luxuries trader.
Silver can be used to make black bronze, created by alloying 68-84% copper, 8-16% silver and 8-16% gold. Black bronze is a tier 3 metal, and the most effective type of bronze in the game.
Silver can also be used to make silver solder, by mixing 40-50% silver with 50-60% tin.
