y017-1

 

Silver is produced by consolidating y017-2 ( gold ) with y017-3 ( hard ) :  y017-4 y017-3, originally the eye ( y017-5) turned suddenly around ( y017-6 ) to look a man full in the face defiantly, means "obstinate". Compared with gold, silver is a hard ( y017-3) metal ( y017-2), more precious than common copper. Hence the saying : "Even he who has accumulated 10,000 taels of silver cannot take with him at death half a copper ?"
