"You got the Silver Scale! You can dive deeper than you could before."
— In-game description

The Silver Scale is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It is a Zora scale encased in a blue sphere of water that Link receives as the prize for winning the Diving Game in Zora's Domain. It disappears once Link receives the Golden Scale.

To beat the Diving Game, Link must jump down the waterfall, and dive for the 5 blue Rupees. It costs 20 Rupees to play, and if Link can manage to retrieve all 5 blue Rupees he gets to keep them. This totals 25 Rupees, which means if Link beats the game on the first try he receives not only the Silver Scale, but also gains 5 Rupees. The Silver Scale allows Link to dive for up to 6 seconds, and can be used when he is either a child or an adult.

The Silver Scale is required to obtain the Letter in a Bottle at the bottom of Lake Hylia.
