  Silver Colloids: Frequently Asked Questions
Silver atoms have no ionic charge to produce a repulsive force, so they are draw together by the van der Waals' force of attraction and aggregate into particles of metallic silver.
Silver ions in a solution cannot exist without water, so when the water is evaporated the silver ions (cations) must combine with an available anion to form a compound.
The silver particles do not have a positive charge, their charge is negative and is not due to "ionic charge" as are the ions, but have a zeta potential which causes the particle to act as though it had a negative charge.

 Silver (color) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Silver is the metallic shade of the color gray closest to that of polished silver.
This cannot be reproduced by a simple solid color, because the shiny effect is due to the material's brightness varying with the surface angle to the light source.
Silver is also one of the few words in the english launguage that does not rhyme with anything else.

 Wing-N-Wave Labradors: Labrador Coat Color Controversy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Silver puppies born of purebred, AKC registered Labrador parents should be destroyed to preserve the breed.
The silver coloration is considered a serious fault in the breed, however, it does not alter the health or disposition of the dog.
This strongly suggests that the silver color is not a color that was present (indigenous) in the early ancestors of the Labrador breed.

 Breed Article: Silver and Golden Persian
Silver breeders were criticized if their cats were not colorbred; however, there was no agreement on how many generations were required for a silver to be considered a “colorbred” cat.
Color breeding was a necessity for many years in order to maintain the beautiful trademark coloring of the silver Persian.
During a discussion while judging silvers, one judge stated his opinion that silvers (and goldens) should have a nose “as broad as it is long.” This meets the description in the standard for a “broad” nose, as well as contributing to the overall balance of the cat.

 Silver Dapple Gene
The effect of the silver dapple gene is most striking on a fl horse, where the body color is diluted to a chocolate and the mane and tail are lightened to a silvery blonde.
The body color remains red or brown (though some sources insist it is lightened slightly), the lower legs are lightened to chocolate, and the mane and tail are a silvery blonde.
The silver dapple bay is often assumed to be a sorrel horse with a flaxen mane and tail.

 Silver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Silver is often used in modern horror fiction as a weapon against certain supernatural entities, especially werewolves, who are sometimes described as being burned by silver.
Silver is found in native form, combined with sulfur, arsenic, antimony, or chlorine and in various ores such as argentite (Ag) and horn silver (AgCl).
Silver and compounds containing silver (like colloidal silver) can be absorbed into the circulatory system and become deposited in various body tissues leading to a condition called argyria which results in a blue-grayish pigmentation of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes.

 The Silver Institute-Silver News
Indeed, total consumption of silver for photographic uses is expected to increase 10 percent from 232 million ounces in 1997 to 255 million ounces in 2002.
It is safe bet that conventional cameras and color negative films will continue to be the dominant combination for snap shooting through 2002, and that most of the final output will be prints made on color paper.
The net result of these competing developments will be slow growth in color negative film and color paper volume, a further decline in fl and white paper volume, and 9.7 percent decline in silver use in the professional sector from 6.2 million to 5.6 million ounces.

 The Silver Bengal Cat   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The silver, unlike the blue and longhaired gene is a dominant gene and thus silver will be produced in a litter if one or both parents are silver.
If one parent is silver and the other is not, many of the kittens will have a very dull tarnished look to them, their contrast will be poor and coat color in general will also be poor.
Silver is a very touchy color in the Bengal breed as it can diminish the actual beauty and contrast that the Bengal standard demands.

 Silver Labradors
Silver Labs are gray (similar to the color of a Weimaraner), have gray nails, gray noses and have gray pads on their feet.
Silver pups' eyes are light blue until 6-8 months old; as adults Silver Labs' eyes are pale yellow (about half the tone of a chocolate Lab).
Opponents of Silver Labs who argue they are unable to prove their ridiculous accusations through genetic research show the depth of their ignorance-and the shallowness of their credibility.

 Fishing for Silver Salmon in Alaska
Yet another member of the family 'Salmonidae', the Silver or Coho Salmon is one of the most exciting to fish for largely because of its antics when hooked, but it is also a delicious tasting salmon that can sometimes run in very large numbers.
Silvers primarily feed on herring when in saltwater, but their second favorite meal is sand lance.
Silvers reach adult sizes by 18 months, at which time they return to freshwater to spawn in their native streams.

 eBay Guides - Color on Silver Coins
Silver coins come white, toned, and “rainbow,” which is toned but with the full spectrum of colors.
Color or lack of color is one of the key issues that is subject to change as collectors change what is in fashion to collect.
This is because they may be downgraded at the grading services for the awfully unattractive coin under the color; or worse, they may not be graded at all and be considered environmentally damaged if the color has leached or eaten into the coin’s surface.

 The Truth Behind Silver Labradors
When chocolate is dilute the color is a silvery mousey brown and the dilute version of a fl (Bb or BB) yields a dog that is dark slate gray or "blue".
Some breeds accept the color and others do not and if the dilution factor is present in a breed it is found the world over and is known to be in the population.
There are many reasons why silver Labradors should not be produced and the main one is that they are a disqualification and adhering to a standard while breeding is what keeps a breed a breed.

 Silver Labrador Retriever, AKC and Sliver Labs
Consensus at the "Silver Lab" meeting held on July 14, 1997.
In 1987 we conducted an inquiry into the breeding of the litters that contained the dogs that were registered as silver and one of our representatives was sent to observe several of the dogs that had been registered as silver.
Color photographs of these dogs were forwarded to the office of the American Kennel Club where the staff of the AKC and the representatives of the Labrador Retriever Club of America examined them.

 Silver Labradors ?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Yes, it would be interesting to see what color traits these "silver" Labradors carry, and I suggest that they are not tested by their owners, because it may be found that the dog was indeed a "dilute" chocolate, or that it carries a color trait that is only found in other breeds (see Weimaraners).
Reputable breeders of Labradors complained to the AKC that their "OTHER" option for color on AKC puppy registrations was opening the door for dogs (including silvers) who were out of standard to be defined as a "color" in Labradors, when in fact, it was an error in coloration, akin to a mismarked puppy.
These "silver" dogs can only compete in the breed ring as chocolates, and the chocolate color is well described in the breed standard, so when you see reference to "shades of chocolate", please refer to the breed standard for clarification.

While silvers have variations in the amount of tipping, they do have a white undercoat with fl tipping – one shade of white and one shade of fl, to simplify the description.
Many have used or are using other colors in their breeding programs, but should resist showing a silver or golden with gold eyes even if they are very typey.
