|A more or less typical advertisement for Colloidal silver.|
It is not my intent to advertise this product in any way herein. Furthermore, I am in no way representing that it has any medical benefits in any way. However, people do buy this product from many places and my intent is to point that out to you. This is one use for silver. It is literally used up in this way as well as a few others which I am pointing out now.
Because silver is the best thermal and electrical conductor of all the metals, silver is ideal for electrical applications.
Its high luster and reflectivity make it perfect for jewelry, silverware, and mirrors.
Silver can be ground into powder, turned into paste, shaved into flakes, converted into salt, alloyed with other metals, flattened into printable sheets, drawn into wires, suspended as a colloid, or even employed as a catalyst. These qualities ensure that silver will continue to shine in the industrial arena, while its long history in coinage and jewelry will sustain its status as a symbol of wealth and prestige.

Much of the world's silver is produced as a by-product of other mining operations. Lead mining mostly.
It is with this in mind that I tell you that silver has the potential to go ballistic in value. It is being used up by so many industrial operations, medical operations and other places like jewelry and silverware. Add the fact that it is pretty much too expensive to simply mine silver these days. The "silver product" is actually a by-product because of this.
The cost to produce silver simply must go up in the near future. Add to this the "crash" factor and I believe you are on the right track.
