A mithril bar is a metal bar refined through the Smithing skill by smelting one mithril ore and one coal together, either using a furnace or the Superheat Item spell. Smelting a mithril bar requires a Smithing level of 30 and grants 5 Smithing experience. Mithril bars can be smelted 25% and 50% faster beginning at Smithing levels 31 and 37, respectively. Additionally, starting at Smithing level 38, there is a chance of smelting an extra bar without consuming additional ores.
Mithril bars can be forged at an anvil into mithril equipment. A list of items produced from mithril bars and their requirements may be found here.
A mithril bar is one of the materials required to create the Blessed flask.
Mithril is a bluish purple-tinged metal which is both stronger and lighter than steel. The early dwarves used it widely in their equipment and machinery, but by the end of the First Age they preferred the more durable adamant and used mithril almost exclusively for jewellery. Mithril is the strongest metal that humans can easily work with, because it can still be melted in primitive coal furnaces. Being rare on the surface, it was highly prized by the early Fremennik and swords made of the material became valuable heirlooms.

- Mithril derives from the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings, and is Sindarin for "grey-glitter," but is also featured in many fantasy worlds, such as Dungeons & Dragons, the Final Fantasy series, The Elder Scrolls series, and World of Warcraft; sometimes spelled mithral.
- Just as Tolkien described, mithril is lighter than most metals found within RuneScape, weighing 1.59 kg, 0.2 kg less than iron (1.80 kg), steel (1.81 kg) and rune (1.81 kg).
