What is Mithril?

Mithril is a fictional metal from J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth fantasy writings. Like the real metal titanium, it is silvery and stronger than steel but much lighter in weight.

Of all items made of Mithril
, the most famous is the "small shirt of mail" retrieved from the hoard of the dragon Smaug, and given to Bilbo Baggins by Thorin Oakenshield.

Bilbo wore the Mithril
shirt during the Battle of the Five Armies, and took it with him when he left the Shire. Later, he gave the shirt to Frodo Baggins when the younger hobbit embarked on his quest in The Lord of The Rings.

 
In Moria, the mail saved Frodo's life when he was hit by an Orc spear during the battle in the Chamber of Mazarbul. It saved Frodo's life again when an Orc-arrow struck him while escaping Moria, and again when he was struck by another Orc-arrow while crossing the River Anduin.
