Silver is found in elemental form. It has also been found in ores such as Horn Silver and Argentite. The sources for commercial silver (such as jewelry and serving ware) come from copper-nickel, copper, lead-zinc ores, gold and lead. It's drawn from the sludge of anode wastes that come from electronic copper refining.
