A Tolkien Bestiary (also published as Guide to Tolkien's World: A Bestiary, Characters from Tolkien, Creatures From Tolkien) One can then go on to look at the various families of Elfkind, and the entries under the different names for each.In ye olden days of the mid-1980s books and bookstores focused on money and power. Finances and the law were hot topics...elves and magic, not so much. So when I, a humble Tolkien fan, discovered this brilliant tome of all things Tolkien I nearly cried. Second entry: "Adamant". Tyler defines this as "A poetic invention for an imagined hard substance." The Oxford English Dictionary generally agrees, but points out that after the 17th century the word was treated as a synonym for "diamond" (which seems consistent with the appearance of Galadriel's Ring, a fact which might be worth mentioning), and that in modern use it's only a "poetical name for the embodiment of surpassing hardness". It's odd that after a long digression on the making of the Rings in the entry for "Accursed Years", Tyler doesn't manage to name any place in Tolkien's writings where the word "Adamant" is to be found.
