Adamantine, sometimes called obsidian, a rare volcanic glass, is one of the most precious substances in Ama’Glen, mainly found buried in the lava flows from volcanoes. Veins can also be found in Asgard, and occasionally in <placename>. Raw Adamantine itself is an extremely hard, durable, black glass-like substance, said to be the crystallized blood of the gods.
The ore has several alchemical properties, but is more often smelted into ingots for use in smithing. Adamantine armor is made by repeatedly folding the ore upon itself to form strips, which are then molded into shape. This creates a durable, heavy armor. Adamantine weapons are also highly prized.
