Aren't gray and silver mostly and basically the same color?

I admit i'm slightly color blind sometimes, but it appears to me that the colors gray and silver are 1 in the same. I'm curious to know if they are or if they aren't and if so, why? Peace!

    Since the RGB computer color model was introduced, with 256 million colors - and even before - the names of colors have become less and less important unless you are painting a house. It has become 0,0,0 to 255,255,255 and everything in between. But yes, "silver" is a grey with lots of white in it. Actual pure, metallic silver is almost pure white.

    Well that's like asking what color is a mirror! It is silver but you can usually see lots of other colors due to the shininess. And there will be specular highlights. But grey is dull and matt, nothing is reflected by a grey.

    Yes gray and silver are the same base. Silver is shiny or glitter. Peace. Like gold and copper. Copper has more red.
