Corundum Ore is a crafting material found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Corundum ore is used to make corundum ingots at a smelter. Smelting it together with iron ore produces steel ingots.

Corundum Ore VeinsEdit

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, Skyrim time, while ores found outdoors generally respawn after ten days.


Corundum Ore can be found in the following places:
