An adamant bar is a bar of metal, refined through the Smithing skill by using an adamantite ore and 6 pieces of coal on a furnace, or by casting the Magic spell Superheat Item. Smelting a bar of adamantite requires level 70 Smithing, granting 37.5 Smithing experience.
Adamantite ore can be mined at level 70 Mining, while the coal can be mined at level 30 Mining.
An adamant bar can be smithed on an anvil through the Smithing skill to create adamant weapons and armour, granting 62.5 Smithing experience per bar used.
A list of adamant items that can be smithed from adamant bars and the Smithing levels required can be found here.
It costs 2,181 coins to manufacture one bar, assuming all materials are purchased from the Grand Exchange; a profit of 867 coins. Using Superheat Item to smelt an adamant bar cost 2,982 coins; 2,586 coins if a fire staff is used. Using the Blast Furnace to halve the coal required results in a cost of 1,659 coins, a profit of 1,389 coins.
The word "adamant(ite)" is abstracted form the Greek word "adamas" (also the root of the word "diamond") meaning "unconquerable," and refers to any strong metal.
For little more than half a year it was the strongest metal in RuneScape Classic, being released in January 2001 while Runite wasn't released until August of the same year.
The name "adamantite bar" was changed to "adamant bar" in November 2010, because adamantite was the name of the ore, not the metal. The name of "runite bar" was also changed to "rune bar" for the same reason.
Adamant is the heaviest of all ores, with the adamant bar being the heaviest bar in-game, with the exception of an obsidian bar which weighs 3 kg.
