The word "orichalcum" is derived from the Greek word oreichalkos, meaning "mountain copper" or "mountain metal", and is mentioned in several ancient writings, most notably associated with Atlantis. Orichalcum was said to be second in value only to gold, and was the source of Atlantis' wealth and power. The exact type of metal that Orichalcum was is unknown, but it is commonly thought to be some form of alloy of bronze and/or copper, and other metals.
