Glassteel lacked the normal greenish tint of glass, instead gleaming a dullish and almost translucent gray. It was stronger than iron but only half as heavy. Furthermore, it was fully translucent.
It was mostly used as a construction material in fantastic castles, but also found use in the windows of armored spelljammers, such as hammerships. Some also used it to create weapons and armor, though for most, the cost of doing this was prohibitively expensive, especially when crafting armor. Glassteel armor was much lighter than others of its kind, enabling greater ease of movement.
