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.

In the times of old, 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.

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.

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.

In contrast to its eerie use, Flowerite is also popular amongst wind instruments used by bards such as the flute or trumpet. The notes are amplified in relation to the instrument being used, as well as producing the mentioned dust augments that sparkle around the instrument. This was seen to naturally motivate armies when used by battle bards in a regiment. The clouds are still typically softer than what the metal used to exhibit pre-Cataclysm, but still serve to create a deceitfully magic awe effect.
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.

This occured on a natural and unmagical level and how the Kathar obtained the metal on a decent scale, is unknown.

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.

Located in dense deposits across Corontium, Flowerite is a light metal with a deep pink coloration once forged. Its strange color is matched by its strange ability; it is capable of ringing out with a harmonious tonal C note when struck by another object. For this reason, its use in weaponry and armor is next to non-existent, as instead, it prospers among the artistic community and among those eccentric enough to desire bright pink jewelry.
Flowerite had been known to the Ailor of the Regalian Archipelago going back to at least 300 BC, specifically to those in the south-western corner of the landmass. Its natural beauty often saw it kept natural, though efforts to forge it soon came about as the Ailor of the region grew more sophisticated, and the Regalian Kingdom’s power waned, replaced by local leaders with greater independence. Efforts were also carried out by several regional petty kingdoms to see the material forged. By 50 BC, refined Flowerite was beginning to be used. However, its ability to sound a perfect music note drastically decreased its usefulness, as no weapon could be formed from it. It did not help that the color was considered odd during this time, and there were far more practical varieties of the metal. It was only later, with the rise of and contact with the Ithanian Ailor, along with their migration into the same region with the substance, that Flowerite prospered and spread abroad. Today, the substance is commonly used in the music sector, and among those nobles with an ostentatious fashion style.
Flowerite, in its raw state, is an opaque but richly pink-colored ore, with swirls of black and yellow sitting throughout the formation. However, once it is refined, the metal solidifies into a solid, rich pink coloration.
The principal use of Flowerite is in the artistic space, specifically the art of music. It is often formed into a false bell, or a specially installed item, with a nearby striking rod to produce its unique tone. The other use of Flowerite is in jewelry given its bright, exotic coloration, but it is often paired with other metals. Still, some Ithanians have a heavy obsession with wholly Flowerite jewelry.
Flowerite’s ability is unique among all other metals. Unlike those that constantly make noise when moved, Flowerite remains inert. However, when a Flowerite-forged object is hit with another object, such as a wooden or metal rod, the material produces a harmonious tonal C noise that resonates in the air around it.
- There exists one prominent Flowerite sword, once wielded by the supposed “Baritone Warrior” of the Hecarian Kingdom. It was said he greatly believed in the marshal spirit and encouraged war camp celebrations through songs, using his blade to help begin battle songs. This blade was also said to be highly unnerving if not distracting to his opponents, while he had trained himself to ignore it, granting him a high degree of combat prowess.
- Hot pink Flowerite jewelry most commonly appears in the form of large disc earrings, though those seeking to fully protect their ears often instead use it in necklaces and pendants.
- Flowerite’s original name comes from the initial confusion of miners who first excavated it, calling it “deep earth flowers” given its bright color when compared to the dank, dark conditions it was found in.
