This title introduces young readers to silver, the most conductive metal on earth! Learn how silver is formed and where it is found. Historic and modern mining methods are detailed. The many uses of silver are examined, from industrial applications in products such as computers and electric switches to medicines and antiseptic clothing! See how artisans such as silversmiths and lapidaries use silver to create beautiful and useful jewelry and wares. Finally, a list of tools and tips will set young rock hounds up to unearth their own treasures. Glossary words in bold, an index, and phonetic spellings for those hard-to-pronounce geologic terms enhance and supplement the text.
