What Silver Is

When we hear the word "silver", or when we just imagine it, the world seems to plunge into the sea of chanted visions: silver moonlight, a silver brook, silver glare, silver rain... It is common knowledge that silver is also a precious metal from which a lot of jewelry is made.

Among famous people wearing silver are Betsy Brandt, Ursula Whittaker, Karina Smirnoff, Chelsie Hightower and many others...

However, silver isn't just a beautiful decoration. It also has a healing effect and it gives women beauty as subtle and charming as moonlight.

Silver is a tensile, malleable, easy-to-forge metal. It has a sparkling white color, reflects up to 95% of light. Silver can be twisted in any possible way, rolled out papyrus-like and stretched as thin as a spider's thread. It can be dissolved in concentrated nitric and sulfuric acids.

How Silver is Used

Pure silver is only used to cover items made of cheap metals. When used for making jewelry, it is normally alloyed with other metals, for example, copper. Besides jewelry, silver is used to make silverware, tableware and chandeliers.

In ancient Persia, Egypt, Greece and Rome silver served the same purpose as gold: it was used as money. In Babylon and Assyria, with their Moon cult, silver was considered a sacred metal. Till the middle of the second millennium B.C. silver was a rare product. It was brought to Egypt from Syria.

Ancient silver jewelry also contains a solid amount of gold.

The Power Of Silver

In ancient times already, people knew about the healing, disinfecting and purifying capacity of silver. Herodotus, when writing about the campaign of king Cyrus of Persia, mentioned that they kept drinking water in silver jars, and the water did not get spoilt despite the heat. Nowadays, there are scientific proofs that silver disinfects water.

Ancient Egyptian priests who were also known as healers applied silver plates to the wounds of Pharao's warriors. Parapsychologists affirm that silver is capable of reflecting emotional state, redirecting negative energy and thus purifying the body and the soul.

A silver spoon, when placed in a glass of water makes the water healthier. Drunk before a meal, it does not only disinfect water but also helps better digestion. If you regularly drink "silver" water, you may forget about infections forever. Drinking from silver silverware is very beneficial in many ways.

When wearing silver jewelry during an illness, we can restore quicker.

The fact is, Russian beauties used to wash their faces with ice water from a silver pitcher. This helped them avoid acme and keep their skin pure and clean. It also toped up their skin and kept it young.

Modern science has a proof that silver fights bacteria four times more effectively than chlorine.

You, too, can prepare silver water for face rinsing. Just place a silver coin or spoon in a glass jar filled with clean boiled water, then place the jar into a fridge for 24 hours. Rinse your face with this water regularly.

You can also make ice cubes for morning fresh-ups from silver water. Just make ice cubes as you do normally but use silver water instead of just tap water. You can also add one spoon of lemon or grapefruit juice to this water before you make ice cubes.

      Dear avorodisa,

      Thank you for a fascinating article. Many of us know of the antibacterial properties of silver but I never thought of extending this to drinking water. I am going to try this as I need to improve my immune system.
