 A Grammar of Blazonry
To quote Woodward, to blazon a device is to verbally describe it "in heraldic terminology so exactly that anyone acquainted with the language of armory may be able accurately to depict it from its concise description." This is the essence of blazonry: the ability to reconstruct the emblazon.
Thus a device we might blazon as Argent, on a fess sable between three mullets gules, three annulets argent, a chief gules would be blazoned in a Victorian style as Argent, on a fess sable between three mullets gules, as many annulets of the field, a chief of the third.

 Official 1782 Description of the Great Seal of the United States
The original form of the Great Seal is this written description that uses heraldic language to precisely describe the appearance of the imagery.
Called a "blazon," it is the starting point for creating an accurate die or illustration of the Great Seal.

 Silver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In heraldry, the argent, in addition to being shown as silver (this has been shown at times with real silver in official representations), can also been shown as white.

Europeans found a huge amount of silver in the New World in Zacatecas and Potosí, which triggered a period of inflation in Europe.
