Moria, only known deposit of Mithril

Mithril, also known as true silver, mistarille, grey glitter and moria silver was the most precious of all metals, only found in one place in the entirety of Middle-Earth: Moria. It had all the beauty of silver but did not tarnish or grow dim, and it was far stronger, yet far lighter, then common steel. It was used in the making of several alloys, such as ithildin, eog, ithilnaur, mithrarian, and galvorn.
