Adamantite artwork from Final Fantasy.

Before the advent of alloys made by Man, adamantite was for many years the strongest metal known. Even today its quality and strength are peerless, save for a handful of rare alloys. That is why they tell of the fool who swallowed a shard of adamantite, only to have it cut its way out of his belly. A salutary tale, to be sure!

Research Notes

Adamantite (アダマンタイト, Adamantaito?), sometimes called Adamantine (アダマンタイン, Adamantain?) or Adamant, is a precious metal found in several installments of the Final Fantasy series. It is usually used to make valuable weapons.
