, also known as obsidian in certain parts of Melior, is a hard glassy volcanic rock used for many tools in The Iji Islands
It can be knapped into many intricate shapes and is commonly used for knife blades, fishing hooks, spearheads and axe heads. Knapping refines the material down into a razor-sharp edge, making it sharper than many steel blades could achieve.
