Physical & Chemical Properties

So it's harder than steel but weaker than Tuscan. Now its true quality shines in that it has a unique ability to enhance magical energy and amplify it and control it better. You basically have to program the metal with the enchantment or a magical item and it will take on that property amplifying it. When you make a flaming sword it will increase the fire output and even last longer. Maybe even shine brighter depending on how you do the enchantment and forge the sword. The downside to this is once it takes on an enchantment you can't reforge it or add anything onto it. it doesn't seem to take well to channeling magic into it you have to build it into the metal.

Geology & Geography

History & Usage

Everyday use

The most common use for this is to build enchanted weapons. to increase the ability and output of the weapon. Do you make magical items occasionally and rarely make magical armors.

Manufacturing & Products

Now for the weapon or any magical item, you're going to use this metal to make. Both the enchantment conductor and the body of the weapon must be made of it. The magical mixture for laying the enchantment can be mixed with other stuff, but it definitely has to have it in there. Also, the weapon must be made of 80% of it. the reasoning is if you just make the enchantment out of it it will break the weapon because it has too much output. If you make a weapon with metal and not the enchantment without it. It seems to have a weaker connection to it like it's not merging right.
