Dragon scales are shiny and almost pearlescent. They're smooth to the touch and solid, with a similar feel to metal.
Geology & Geography
Origin & Source
Dragons shed their scales every so often, leaving them behind for humans to make use of.
History & Usage
Dragon scales are largely used in the manufacture of shimmery thread for textiles, but they've also been used in contexts where one might use a metal, such as for making mirrors, nails, jewelry, etc.
Scales must be cleaned before use, to remove any residual dragon skin.
Trade & Market
Virilia is the primary seller of dragon scale and the products made from it. Dragon scale thread is a common product in Virilia, with its silver variety used for mourning dress and wedding gowns and sold as a luxury for other parts of the world where it has less cultural significance. Colored dragon scale is cheaper, more plentiful, and more frequently sold overseas.
Various; green, purple, and red are most common, but dragon scales are found in just about every color.
