Silver Ore VeinEdit
Silver ore veins can be mined with a pickaxe to get silver ore. Each vein, when mined, has a chance to produce a precious gem, as well as producing three ores before becoming depleted. Mined out ore veins will usually regenerate in approximately one month, or 30 in-game days.

- Silver ore may be transmuted from iron ore using the Transmute Mineral Ore spell. Likewise, silver ore can be transmuted into gold ore with said spell.
- Silver ore veins look quite similar to Quicksilver ore veins, though up close Quicksilver veins are shinier than Silver ore veins.
- Iron ore veins appear similar from a distance to Silver veins, though this similarity end when up close, as Iron ore veins have reddish flecks while Silver lacks this color altogether.
