lead

Definition

Lead is a soft, heavy, ductile, and very malleable metal. It is bluish white when freshly cut but quickly tarnishes to dull gray in air.

Lead has many uses throughout the Material Plane. It is used as an ingredient in many glazes used on pottery. It is also a prime ingredient in the process of giving stained glass its vibrant color. Finally, lead is used to make sling bullets.

Lead is found in nature in the form of ores. These include galena, as well as the less common cerussite and anglesite.

Alchemists call it plumbum.
