The Healing Properties Of Silver

What is this beautiful shiny metal that many wear in jewelry? Silver is a metallic chemical element with the chemical symbol AG (Argentum) and it’s atomic number is 47. 

It is a beautiful soft, white lustrous metal that has the highest electrical conductivity of any element and also the highest thermal conductivity of any metal. 

Silver has a Mohs hardness of 2.5 with a cubic crystal structure. Pretty cool, huh?

What Does It Do?

Silver is associated with the Moon Goddess and is receptive/feminine. The element associated with silver is Water. Set with pearl will amplify the element Water and Moon connection to help stabilize emotions and work on accessing that feminine and receptive side. 

Silver has this soothing and calm energy where as Gold is more powerful and intense. Silver, a metal of the emotions, amplifies the energy of any gemstone it is set in–minerals too. 

Silver is also antibacterial. 

Silver in Medicine

Cyrus the Great, a Persian king who ruled somewhere  between 550-529 BC, set up one of the first health boards and established a medical dispensary. 

Drinking water was drawn from a special stream, then it was boiled and stored in huge silver containers. 

In 1884, Dr.Carl Siegmund Franz Credé, a German gynecologist and obstetrician who received his doctorate from the University of Berlin, introduced the use of Silver nitrate eye drops as an antiseptic for the prevention of ophthalmia neonatorum in newborns. 

He used a 2% silver nitrate solution and treated 1,160 newborns. Only two infants still developed the disease. 

Later, the solution was diluted to 1% and is now considered a standard practice in obstetrics.  Click here to learn more.

Colloidal silver is made with silver and is used in many alternative and homeopathic medical remedies. I’ve used it for my teeth before and it helped clear cavities as well as heal a sore throat. Don’t drink it though–you’ll turn blue.

Healing With Silver
Silver is a powerful metal that invokes intuition, dreams, love, protection and is used in many money  or prosperity/wealth affirmations. 

Many countries use silver as some form of currency, so it’s no wonder why silver will attract the energy of prosperity to while meditating.  

Silver is also great with healing aids in sending healing energy–especially if a gemstone/mineral that is wrapped or set in silver is being sent to the person who needs the healing. 


If you wear silver often and it becomes too much for you to handle, Gold or any other projective energy metal or stone, will balance it out. 

Even standing in the sunlight will help. 
I have noticed that when I wire wrap and use Silver and Gold together, the energy is this amazing hot and cold warming up to one another and flowing. One is cool, the other is hot and depending on the stone itself will be amplified. 

For example, below is an Emerald I wrapped in both Silver and 14K Gold Filled Wire, which also has brass in the metal mix. Both Gold and Brass are projective, and Silver is receptive. 

Emerald is also receptive so the silver amplifies the receptive energies of the Emerald while the Gold and Brass balance out the energies and warm the the flow of projective energy. 
Silver and Copper also provide a unique energy. Both metals are receptive, both are associated with the element of Water and both are energy amplifiers. 
Below is a quartz crystal wrapped in both Copper and Silver. 
 Have you ever noticed the healing energy of silver or any  other metals? I would love to read your comments and stories. Feel free to share them in the comment section.
