Silver

I believe that the color silver meant a great deal to Tolkien – he often used it in compounds: silver-grey, silver-hafted, silver-steel. Most famously, it is used in clothing – whether with green or white, I posit that anyone clothed in silver in the stories is to be admired. Well, then. A project for my eighties when everything else is done?
