Golvern is one of the strongest naturally-formed metals known to Elanthian civilization, growing deep in caverns underneath the DragonSpine Mountains where incredible pressures have formed it. It is usually a rich golden color, slightly reddish at times, but never without the golden luster, and grows in veins between dense rocks. It can be dyed, and its natural enchantment is slightly higher than vultite. It is very, very rare due to its location, most of it beyond the delvings of even the most skilled dwarven miners.

Golvern was first discovered by the Dwarves as they explored the network of caverns underneath the DragonSpine, and has since become valued among artisans of other cultures. Due to its scarcity, is it most commonly seen in small amounts used for ornamentation, though its strength and natural enchantment make it suitable for creating some of the finest - and most costly - weapons and armor.
