Corundum Ore is an ore in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It serves many purposes in crafting, including the creation of steel ingots.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Corundum ore is used to make corundum ingots at a smelter, with two ore making one ingot. Smelting it together with an iron ore produces steel ingots. Corundum can be used to craft and improve certain armor and weapons, and with the expansion The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire, corundum is used to craft a number of items as well.

Corundum Ore Veins[edit | edit source]

Corundum ore veins can be mined with a pickaxe. Each vein, when mined, has a chance to produce a precious gem. The ores in the mines respawn after one month in-game time, while ores found outdoors generally respawn after ten days.
