Physical Properties

Squat, warped and dark, the glitvire tree is, by all outside appearances, a thing of nightmares. Covered in bulbous lumps, the limbs of the glitvire tree grow in tangled snarls, often plunging back into the ground to form a maze of natural cage-like structures around the central trunk. Spined leaves hold a fatally hallucinogenic toxin, while the lumpy protrusions within its bark contain pockets of a corrosive sap said to eat through even kertig if left on the metal long enough.

Despite all of this, the wood of the glitvire is extremely beautiful and highly sought after for its dark, satiny finish and intricately whorled grain. Reflective flecks of variegated greens and purples can be seen in the most prized specimens, formed by tiny, crystallized (and thankfully inert) traces of sap. Though rarely found, the tree has been known to spring up in the under canopies of very dense, dark forests, where no other plants seem to survive. Due to both the rarity of the tree itself, and the danger in attempting to harvest its wood, items made from glitvire are often extremely expensive.
