Item Seed [heh]: Lachnimloth.

Lachnimloth – Google Docs




This actually refers to an entire order of trees that grow primarily on lava.  Note that the word ‘trees’ is very much an approximation; lachnimloth are ‘organic’ in the sense that they have a recognizable life cycle, and obey universal biological imperatives.  They are absolutely neither carbon-based, nor part of an oxy-nitrogen ecosystem.


But lachnimloth are still very pretty.  Extremely dangerous to humans in their living form, thanks to the heat, but very pretty. It’s all due to their makeup: the various species of lachnimloth are made up of a complicated mix of glass and trace materials. When alive it has molten glass for sap and various  translucent silicates for bark and ‘flowers.’
