Winding Argentivite adorns a witch’s hand.
Created by Mercuria Phalanx with the Tyakhok goblin clan, Winding Argentivite is a metal that has magically adopted some of the properties of living plants. A cutting of Winding Argentivite will gently attach to skin, and absorb minor quantities of magical aura as well as body heat to grow around a body or limb, but is not rooted and easily removed (unlike the variations accidentally forged in its development), and will remain in stasis until placed back on living skin.
While slow-growing, Winding Argentivite is not known to have a maximum size, and entire sets of robes fetching over a thousand galleons have been grown over decades. It has become common to give witches cuttings of Winding Argentivite when they become of age, so that they may grow themselves their own, perfectly tailored glove, sleeve, collar, or other accessory.
