A xorn crusthide is a powerful and large xorn that has grown massive after years of feasting on precious minerals. Its stony hide is all but impregnable, as mundane weapons harmlessly bounce off and even those wielding weapons empowered by magic or the strength of adamantine find it hard to land decisive blows upon the xorn.
Some property of the xorn's mighty hide even snuffs magic used against it, a property that lingers even after the xorn dies. Fragments of this hide are sometimes worked into magic items intended to protect against magic, though the sheer weight of these fragments means that few such items intended for use by humanoids are larger than shields, though xorn understandably have a dim view of those that use such items.
