A silver bar is a bar of refined silver ore. It can be created through the Smithing skill by using a silver ore on a furnace. Smelting a silver bar will not fill any type of smelting urn. A silver bar can be smelted in a furnace into different shapes through the Crafting skill. Even though smelting silver bars grants less Smithing experience than gold bars, more profit is given. It is a more cost-efficient method of training Smithing in the lower levels. It can also be ground to silver dust in the Ectofuntus grinder for use as an ingredient in the guthix balance potion.
This is one of two normal metal bars which cannot be made into the standard weapons (e.g. swords, battleaxes, etc.), armour (e.g. shields, platebodies, helmets etc.) and tools (e.g. pickaxes, hatchets, etc.), the other being the gold bar. Silver bars however, can be made into silver sickles, which can be wielded as weapons although they are not very effective in combat.
Needs to be strung with a ball of wool and then blessed. Can only be made after the Observatory Quest. (The displayed values are for the base item, Unstrung emblem. Stringing provides 4 additional crafting experience. Selling this item in large quantities may prove to be difficult, as there is little demand for it.)
