24 Types of Silver Color

 ,
Silver is the color of highly reflective metals such as polished silver. The characteristic metallic shine of silver is due to a mirror-like reflection of light. This makes silver an unusual color because it directly responds to the intensity of a light source. This is not reproduced by most digital display or printing technologies. As such, silver as a solid digital color often looks disappointingly grey. This can be fixed with a texture or animation that looks reflective such that you can sense the shape of a light source in the color. The following are common types of silver color.
