Nethecite is a highly corrosive stone used in some very specific mechanical applications. It is highly corrosive on contact and highly reactive with many other materials. As a result, it is very difficult to store, as it tends to eat through most containers.
In the presence of a proper reagent, it can cause a chemical reaction which releases great amount of energy. It has potential to provide a large amount of energy while taking up very little space.
Nethicite is mined in the Hellstooth Mountains by the Baert Company. The mining process is extremely hazardous; serious injury and death are not uncommon among those unfortunate souls who mine it. This has prompted The Crimson Coats to protest Baert’s mining operations on at least one occasion.
