Mithral

Mithral is a beautiful, but rare, silvery metal that has the strength and hardness of steel but is much lighter.[1] Mithral is magnetic,[2] and has the same anathematic capability as alchemical silver in overcoming some creatures' resistances to normal weapons or magic circles, such as lycanthropes.[1][3]

Armour is the most common use of the metal: mithral armour is very light and restricts movement far less than even masterwork steel armour.[1]

Off the battlefield, mithral is sometimes used in cookware as food rarely sticks to it. Of course, such items are very rare due to the prohibitive cost of using mithral for such mundane purposes.[4]
