Flowerite is a relatively rare material that comes in a vibrant pink color; ranging from hot pink to mellow peach, with small swirls of black swirling throughout it. Flowerite has been popular in [[Ithania]] for centuries, going back to the time of the [[Varran Empire]]. In the modern day, the metal is often used in jewelry and as decorations on furniture. It is also seen as a very feminine material due to its coloration and relation to the musical arts as when hit with metal, it produces a ringing sound. It is also not uncommon for astrologists or eccentric professors to believe the rock is connected with the female gender. Within the last decade, there have been rumors of Flowerite deposits being found in [[Daendroc]], but for now, the metal remains rare and exclusive to Ithania.

==History==
 
==History==
In the times of old, rumored to be as far back as 46 BC, the Varran Empire wielded a luxurious metal with jaw dropping properties. Flowerite, as it was called, was discovered before the [[Cataclysm]] and used as an advanced parlor material for high class entertainment and event showings. Few Pre-Cataclysm records written by the old [[Elven Empire]] have been recovered by various archaeologists. These records signify that the metal pre-Cataclysm wielded even more abilities and properties. Such abilities and properties since the Cataclysm have been lost for whatever unknown reason, but note what is transcribed as a larger mass of swirling particles of colors unable to be conceived by the mind. Though the use and abilities of Flowerite have taken a massive downgrade, the metal still acts as a jaw dropping material and holds some of its original entertaining properties. Other details on the use of the material in these records confirm its admittance into Varran armor and weaponry as decoration. One notes that when laced along the edge of a blade and swung, the air directly reacts to the metal to create a large colorful particle effect. Though this has no combative advantage, it did confuse an opponent by feinting to wield magical properties or enchantments when in reality the weapon did not. This often forced opponents against a Flowerite laced weapon to overestimate an enemy. The use Post-Cataclysm in terms of weaponry is much more impractical. Though the metal still releases a colorful particle effect of fine dust and sparkle, it is at a decreased quantity, and hardly confuses an enemy.

Following the Cataclysm, after Ithania freed itself from Imperial rule by the [[Altalar]], Flowerite’s popularity with the regional nobility extended to the [[Ailor]] who now also dominated politics. With the rise of the arts in Ithania, Flowerite’s natural ability to ring helped musicians greatly and came to be viewed as an important feminine symbol in the region. Today, this importance continues in Ithania and various Ithanian-influenced territories of the [[Regalian Empire]]. Some scholars have even gone on to call it the Woman’s Rock in the mineral and astrological worlds. Within the last decade, reports have come in of small deposits of the metal supposedly located within Daendroc, but in hostile terrain. Given how much [[Ithanians]] prize the material though, it is inevitable that someone will reach it, mine it, and sell it to the peaceful people of Ithania.

===General Uses===
Post-Cataclysm, Flowerite has several uses, the first of which is functioning as a decorative feature in furniture. Its second use is in jewelry, particularly female jewelry, where it often appears carved into the shape of flowers. This also falls to decorative insignias and badges in exclusive armies such as the military orders of various Varran city states as well as the Ithanian Guard. The most notable and popular use of Flowerite however, is its admittance in musical devices, ranging from tubular trumpets and flutes to metallic bells and the attention rod. The attention rod is a simple and common metallic cylinder that once struck, will manifest a small sparkle of colors along its range, and hues of dust which also sparkle through the air similar to popping gunpowder on a timid level. The ring the device exhibits serves as a calling to a Noble attendance, a “hear hear” at a dinner table, or even as a signal to a toast at a wedding. No matter the method, it usually works well to call the attention of a crowd.

Flowerite has two unique abilities. The first popular use is to cast the metal into a bell or musical triangle. Once struck with another object, usually metal as well, it will release a particular ringing sound. The sound is often closest to middle C in the operatic system of vocal classification. Hitting it with anything else, such as wood or stone, will produce a weaker and sometimes warbled sound that has no comparison to metal striking it. If bone is used to strike a casted trinket of Flowerite, the sound will procure an eerie note designed to create dissonance and tension. This gives it an unpleasant shrill tone as it does not logically follow the sounds Flowerite instruments proceed it. There is one sound that mirrors this description well, normally compared to as a ‘scream’. This sudden outburst is described as chaotically stressing to the ears, however, this doesn’t necessarily create any magical effects or augmenting stress. It is simply described as such through natural manipulation of notes.

Characteristics

Appearance

Flowerite appears in its raw state as an opaque but richly pink-colored stone. Whenever air brushes along the metal, it exhibits a combination between a dust cloud and sparkling wave of colors ranging from hot pink, red, violet purple, and mellow peach, with small swirls of black and yellow swirling throughout the formation.

General Uses

Post-Cataclysm, Flowerite has several uses, the first of which is functioning as a decorative feature in furniture. Its second use is in jewelry, particularly female jewelry, where it often appears carved into the shape of flowers. This also falls to decorative insignias and badges in exclusive armies such as the military orders of various Varran city-states as well as the Ithanian Guard. The most notable and popular use of Flowerite however, is its admittance in musical devices, ranging from tubular trumpets and flutes to metallic bells and the attention rod. The attention rod is a simple and common metallic cylinder that once struck, will manifest a small sparkle of colors along its range, and hues of dust which also sparkle through the air similar to popping gunpowder on a timid level. The ring the device exhibits serves as a calling to a Noble attendance, a “hear hear” at a dinner table, or even as a signal to a toast at a wedding. No matter the method, it usually works well to call the attention of a crowd.

Abilities

Flowerite has two unique abilities. The first popular use is to cast the metal into a bell or musical triangle. Once struck with another object, usually metal as well, it will release a particular ringing sound. The sound is often closest to middle C in the operatic system of vocal classification. Hitting it with anything else, such as wood or stone, will produce a weaker and sometimes warbled sound that has no comparison to metal striking it. If bone is used to strike a casted trinket of Flowerite, the sound will procure an eerie note designed to create dissonance and tension. This gives it an unpleasant shrill tone as it does not logically follow the sounds Flowerite instruments proceed it. There is one sound that mirrors this description well, normally compared to as a ‘scream’. This sudden outburst is described as chaotically stressing to the ears, however, this doesn’t necessarily create any magical effects or augmenting stress.

Trivia

  • A Flowerite bell was carved in 200 AC and was said to represent the purity of the Ithanian people found around it. When a consort to the Princess of the Hivre was determined to be having an affair outside his own relationship with the Princess in 231 AC, the artist’s son cracked the bell to symbolize the broken purity. The Purity Bell is now a site of prayer for Unionist men and some women that their own purity may not be broken.
  • In contrast to the bell used in Ithania, another bell of Flowerite laced in casted bone decorations served as an aesthetically dreadful device used by the Kathar military during incursions, to plant unresolved tension in the ears of an opposing army., or to disrupt battle bards and drummers to demotivate an opposing army. This occured on a natural and unmagical level and how the Kathar obtained the metal on a decent scale, is unknown.
  • Some wonder if Flowerite shares any similarity with the Song Flower of Fendarfelle, a crystalline flower which also produces tones and sounds.
  • Some believe that in addition to their advanced technology around machinery, the Varran Empire used Flowerite to produce powerful sound-based weapons Pre-Cataclysm, hinted at by the recovered recordings found by scholars and archaeologists.
  • When used in weaponry, the metal only wields an aesthetic effect of swirling colors and small minute dust clouds of sparkling lights, though its dust clouds don’t produce the light; they simply reflect light already in the area. One popular use is in the whips used in Ithania by female executors and torturers, serving as not only a lash to the body, but a colorful lash to the pride.
