Glass armor is the strongest form of light armor in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, being principally made from Malachite. The Dunmer are the masters of light armor design, and glass armor is the pinnacle of that design.
Inspired by traditional High Elven ornate armors, this very expensive armor utilizes malachite studded into different parts of the armor in order to absorb and distribute shocks in a manner much more efficient than steel. It is also valued for being light and flexible, granting the wearer a superior range of movement than similar strength armors.
Glass armor begins to appear as loot at level twenty. This only goes for armor however, as glass weapons appear much earlier, from about level twelve.
