While gold may be the mineral that most mortal kingdoms are founded and sustained, the pale crystalline Ogarine lies as the cornerstone for the more magically advanced civilizations across the continent.
Ogarine forms in veins and outcroppings of regular hexagonal crystals. The vast majority are a pale blue color and shine with a faint inner light. There are rumors of other colors of Ogarine, though they are rare and may be false.
Ogarine is feels lighter than most other stones and is slightly warm to the touch and will leave a faint tingle on contact with the skin.
Many potions utilize Ogarine as a way of infusing magic into otherwise mundane ingredients.
Geology & Geography
Ogarine can be found in many of the worlds more magical places in moderate concentrations. Grander deposits are said to be the crystallization of magics from the battles between gods or sites of arcane ritual from before the start of history.
Origin & Source
Ogarine is the physical crystallization of magic in the world. Most naturally occurring deposits can be found in areas with high concentrations of natural magic. Some scholars have had minimal success with artificially creating small amounts through magical and alchemical means, though it is not in a great enough quantity as to be economically viable.
History & Usage
Ogarine can be refined into a much more potent liquid form through the use of alchemical solvents, though it is significantly less stable.
Trade & Market
Small quantities can be bought in most alchemical or magic shops. Large quantities are more likely to be supervised by governing bodies.
The material can be stored like most other crystalline material, though special care should be taken that no nearby magical items are able to draw power from the crystal unsupervised. This is a rare occurrence.
Law & Regulation
Some kingdoms place limits on the quantity that an individual may possess.
