  Silver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Silver is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Ag (from the traditional abbreviation for the Latin Argentum) and atomic number 47.
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 can be absorbed into the circulatory system and become deposited in various body tissues leading to the condition called argyria which results in a permanent grayish pigmentation of the skin and mucous membranes.

Liberation from manufacture and casting of alloys; during fabrication of silver metal, alloys, and bimetals for electrical uses; and during electroplating operations and fabrication of solders and brazing alloys; during manufacture and use of photographic chemicals and materials; during manufacture of mirrors, and during manufacture of silver powder pigments and paints.
Principal ores are argentite, cerargyrite or horn silver (mixture of halides), proustite and pyrargyrite.
Silver is one of the most physically and physiologically cumulative of the elements, leading to a disturbing, permanent cosmetic effect when body burden has accumulated Ag in excess of 1 g.

 Silver halide photographic emulsion and method for manufacture thereof - Patent 5087555
A silver halide photographic emulsion as in claim 1, wherein said tabular silver halide grains are tabular AgBrI or AgBrICl grains of multi-layer structure comprising a core and at least one shell layer, the iodide content of the outermost shell layer being from 0 to 6 mol%.
Furthermore, with the methods in which silver iodide is used for the seed crystals, the proportion of hexagonal tabular grains among the tabular grains which are formed is low, and the proportion of deformed tabular grains, such as trapezoidal and rhomboidal tabular grains, is high.
The iodide content of the core of these grains was 20 mol% and the average iodide content of the grains overall was 7.8 mol% and the calculated mole fraction of the central portion was 0.39.

 Photographic print elements containing cubical grain silver iodochloride emulsions - Patent 5728516   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
Having high iodide concentrations at the surface of the grains lowers speed as compared to the emulsions satisfying the requirements of the invention when both emulsions are sensitized to the same minimum density and otherwise produces elevated levels of minimum density that are incompatible with acceptable performance characteristics of photographic reflective print elements.
In the absence of iodide (and hence the absence of iodide induced crystal lattice variances) the peak intensity of stimulated fluorescent emission in the wavelength range of from 450 to 470 nm is relatively low, typically less than that at the reference emission wavelength.
However, in the interest of efficient silver utilization, it is generally contemplated to limit the second grain population to 50 percent or less of the total silver present in the blended emulsion.

It was then dipped into a solution of potassium iodide (500 grains being dissolved in an imperial pint of water, or 57 g/L), where it was allowed to stay two or three minutes until silver iodide was formed.
In this state the iodide is scarcely sensitive to light, but is sensitized by brushing "gallo-nitrate of silver" over the surface to which the silver nitrate had been first applied.
This "gallonitrate" is merely a mixture, consisting of 100 grains of silver nitrate dissolved in 2 fluid ounces of water (114 g/L), to which is added one-sixth of its volume of acetic acid, and immediately before applying to the paper an equal bulk of a saturated solution of gallic acid in water.

 Is Cloud Seeding Harmful
Under the guidelines of the Clean Water Act by the EPA, silver iodide is considered a hazardous substance, a priority pollutant, and as a toxic pollutant.
To effectively monitor the levels of silver toxicity, at the very minimum, water samples should be taken on a monthly basis from every dam, creek, stock tank, and other water capture places in the respective district while cloud seeding is being conducted.
(7,9) “Elevated silver concentrations in biota occur in the vicinities of sewage outfalls, electroplating plants, mine waste sites, and silver iodide-seeded areas.”(12) In fact, in the 1980s the CDC had hoped that silver toxicity would be reduced nationally based on a reduction of cloud seeding activity.
