What is adamantine called in Chondathan, Common, Dwarven, Elven, and Thorass? Other languages?

I expect that there would only be one or two names for it. One culture discovers the stuff, then another culture gets some of it from the first, asks what it is called, and uses that word. And so on. Elves or dwarves likely found it first, and the word spread to the other cultures from them.

Where can it be found on the surface of Faerun ? I know there is some in Tuern but where else can it be found as a trade resource ? Probably in the cities having connexions with underdark but I cannot find any list.

Anyone knows ?

Thanks

I think Ed has said the dwarves call ot ohloro.

As for where it can be found i think there are sizeable deposits beneath citadel Adbar.

There are also deposits beneath the Greypeak Mountains because the dwarves of Ammarindar made two massive doors out of the stuff (Ammarindar is long dead now though).

Ill see if i can find anything else.

Yeah thanks. But these are only mineable deposits. I would be interested in any source of adamantium available on the surface. I mean if Duergar get some from underdark mines, I don't care, but what is important is which surface city they sell it to, so that the resource becomes available for trade with the rest of Faerun overground.

I've found that you can get some in Skullport.

Drow also mine it, so maybe in places where there is commerce with the night elves.

Barastir is right. I would think that the drow of Sshamath under the Far Hills would trade it.

Yeah ok thanks. So the ore should be available to trade in Darkhold. Any other idea ?
