Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.

Native silver is an ore of silver, a mid-value metal. Native silver may also be smelted with other ores to create electrum and billon. Native silver can be found as veins in gneiss and granite. When mined, hunks of native silver are called silver nuggets.

Horn silver is mostly identical to native silver, other than its name and physical properties. Tetrahedrite and galena are related ores which, once smelted, may produce a bar of silver.

In Real Life[edit]

Native silver is not technically an ore; it's just chunks of mostly pure metallic silver, naturally formed. As silver is not very reactive, as metals go, this is not an extremely uncommon form to find silver in.
