Tell me about tarnishing
I know this may seem frivolous, but I am an eighth grade Pre-Ap science student who has had no luck whatsoever in finding the answer to this question. Why does tarnishing occur, and how exactly does it work.Michael Ryan Roberts

Tarnishing is corrosion of the surface. It happens because a metal oxide or sulphide is more stable than a raw metal. The raw metal is active and wants to combine with oxygen or sulfur in the air to form a metal oxide or metal sulphide.
