Galvorn

Revision as of 15:36, 2 August 2008 by Þelma (Talk | contribs)

Galvorn was a metal devised by Eöl from which he made resistant armor. Black and "shining like jet", it was hard as steel, but supple and malleable, proving resistant to all blades and darts.

Etymology

The word galvorn translates as "shining black" in Sindarin. It is formed by combining gal, which means "shine" and morn, signifying "dark" or "black".
