Silver has been part of the human experience for at least 5,000 years. There is evidence of smelting the element in ancient excavations in the mid-east. Humans like crows and ravens seem attracted to shiny things. The Ag come from the Latin word “Argentum” and Silver comes from Middle English “Slolfur”.  It is the best reflector of light known. It also has the highest electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity of any metal. It is a relatively soft metal and has been used for trade for millennia. Although silver does not have a direct biological role in humans, it is well know for its antibacterial properties. It can even be used to purify water in the presence of oxygen replacing chlorine.
