When silver is exposed to air it becomes black due to the formation of a layer of oxide coating.....though silver is not a very reactive metal....bt with the passage of time it slowly reacts with the oxygen in the air and forms black coloured silver oxide......

*Silver is  not the only metal to do so...even gold articles become black
