Question:

What is Argentium silver?

Answer:
Argentium Sterling silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium .[1] As it retains the 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. Argentium has a high tarnish resistance.
