A brilliant helmet made from platinum. The weight of the platinum proved to be a nuisance to many craftsman. In particular, helms are worn on the head, so the weight adds a load to the neck that brought many complaints as travelers donning these helmets found themselves at risk, even outside of battle. But in recent years, the very toil and efforts of craftsmen finally made the helmet light enough to use.
