* The two swords, Anguirel and Anglachel (later renamed as Gurthang), made by Eöl the Dark Elf, in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion''. These swords were made of meteoric iron, which is not naturally black, and TheSilmarillion predates the popular concept of "meteoric iron is naturally black", so they must be blued. Confirmed by an early version of Gurthang in ''Literature/TheBookOfLostTales''--it is black on the flat, with shiny edges. This, however, may be the origin of the black meteoric iron misconception.
