A precious metal in the Known Lands that is beautiful and strong. It is magical and will always resist dark magic. It has great strength and, once polished, will never lose its shine. When properly forged, it becomes stronger than steel.
When properly made into armor, “it will reflect curses back at the one who sent them” (3:354).
To be properly worked it must be heated slowly because “if you put too much heat on it too fasts, it hardens even more than it was to start with” (3:7).
