Silver in Folklore

Silver, considered a metal of purity, is often portrayed in folk tales and modern fiction alike as an effective weapon against vampires, werewolves, and other evil creatures. Silver nails driven into a coffin lid were thought to prevent evil spirits from rising.[1] Silver is also used a great deal in witchcraft, and is usually worn by participants in modern Wiccan rituals.[2]
