0003108: Native metals/raw adamantine have default metal properties
Native metals (including raw adamantine) use METAL_TEMPLATE for most of their properties, despite ostensibly being made out of the metal they represent (note the same melting/boiling points and value).

At any rate, they wind up mostly having the properties of the default template, which I believe is based on iron. This is true regardless of the metal, whether it's gold, silver, raw adamantine, platinum, or anything else; they're all effectively iron except for a few isolated properties.

(slade is a counterexample, but the only one I could really find)
No tags attached.
