Galvorn was the shining black metal devised by master craftsman Eöl.
Galvorn grew out of Eöl's skill of metallurgy skill he learned from his Dwarven friends of the Blue Mountains. Galvorn was said to be as hard as Dwarf-steel, while remaining supple and malleable. Eöl himself had a suit of black armour made from this metal, which he wore whenever he left his woodland home in the depths of Nan Elmoth. It was assumed its secret died with Eöl as it is not mentioned in other writings. However, some claim that the smiths of Gondolin knew how to smith the jet material, as it was said that Maeglin learned everything Eöl knew, and in the Unfinished Tales Túor saw the Dark Guard wearing black armor with a similar description to galvorn.
