Corundum Ore is a crafting material found in .
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Corundum ore is used to make
corundum ingots at a smelter. Smelting it together with iron ore produces steel ingots.
Corundum Ore Veins Edit
Corundum ore veins can be
mined with a pickaxe. Each vein, when mined, has a chance to produce a precious gem. The ores in the mines respawn after one month, Skyrim time, while ores found outdoors generally respawn after ten days.
Corundum Ore can be found in the following places:
18 (only for the quest Boethiah's Calling) veins are in Knifepoint Mine, which can be found at the Knifepoint Ridge bandit camp northwest of Cracked Tusk Keep.
Blackreach - has at least 14 veins throughout the area, some are labeled " geode vein".

4 in Dead Drop Mine after the Dead Drop Falls archery puzzle. There are several pieces of ore here as well.
