In a previous question, I described a purely-fictional metal that was lightweight and impossibly durable, saying it existed in a world not far off from real life in terms of physics. However, I’ve since realized that that world’s physics aren’t as similar to real life’s as I thought. An example of this is that Magic exists in this world and is, on some life-harboring planets, very significant to the way life is lived.
So, I figured I’d ask a refined version of that question.
Either way, for this question in particular, there are two things I need to say:
- First, Skarilium is still just as lightweight and just as enduring as it was previously.
- Second, Skarilium has been revamped to be the result of a process that’s basically an equivalent to the concept of evolution in which a chemical element becomes an entirely different element by gaining the properties of another element, but does not become a compound. For instance, Skarilium is a distant relative of the element known as Specium that is a metal because of it gaining the properties of other metals, particularly Titanium, Iron, Aluminum, and Tungsten.
About that second point, here’s a list of all the elements required to create Skarilium:
Now, given these changes, what kind of environments could Skarilium occur in naturally?
By the way, keep in mind that I’m not asking if Skarilium could exist in real life, anymore. It’s clear that it couldn’t.
Also, I intend to make it clear that Skarilium is not a chemical compound or an alloy: it’s an element. Yes, it’s Specium with properties gained from other elements, but Specium has a property that allows it to combine with other elements without becoming a compound, or at least what’s traditionally considered a compound. Also, I do know that’s very contradictory to real world physics.
Edit #1: I’ve replaced Tungsten and Aluminum with Copper and Silver.
Edit #2: I’ve removed Copper from the list and added another note.
