Clarity [ edit ]
This sentence is unclear:
"The result is a false impression that the
rule of tincture has been violated in cases where argent, applied next to a dark colour, now appears to be sable next to a dark colour from tarnishing."
I am not a specialist in Heraldry, or in color-study. However, I think the meaning would be clearer if it read this way instead:
"This leaves a false impression that the
rule of tincture has been violated in cases where when applied next to a dark colour, argent now appears to be sable due to tarnish."
I am going to make that edit and if someone disagrees, please change it. --

Argentina [ edit ]
Since argent is the romance languages word for silver, is it possible that Argentina may have been named because of silver?

Yes indeed. The estuary dividing Argentina from Uruguay is the
Rio de la Plata, River of Silver. — Tamfang 18:00, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
