25 gold pieces, or mineral goods of equivalent value, which the spell consumes
I assume we can agree that "mineral goods" falls under the category 'object' as defined here: What is considered an object?
Is there a clear definition in 5e of what the term "mineral goods" encompasses, or is it perhaps possible to extrapolate a definition?
Which of the following examples qualifies as acceptable material casting components? 25 gp worth of:
- Swords? (Enough of them, so that the raw amount of iron is worth 25 gp)
- A copper statue? (A raw amount of copper worth 25 gp, ignoring its artistic value)
- A somewhat heavy gold necklace?
- A big pile of gold rings?
Gems and salt seem obviously acceptable. But would using swords, statues or jewelry qualify?
