The word "Silver" appears in Anglo-Saxon in various spellings, such as seolfor and siolfor. Silver was one of the seven metals of antiquity that were known to prehistoric humans and whose discovery is thus lost to history. However, unlike copper, Silver did not lead to the growth of metallurgy on account of its low structural strength and was more often used ornamentally or as money. Silver was more expensive than gold in Egypt until around the fifteenth century BC. The situation changed with the discovery of cupellation, a technique that allowed Silver metal to be extracted from its ores. The origins of silver production in India, China, and Japan were almost certainly equally ancient, but are not well-documented due to their great age.
