Boom Moss

A nitrogen and phosphate rich moss that, with the proper extraction and purification, can form a basic, but powerful natural explosive. Found in caves rich in phosphates and nitrates, though the moss can absorb some nitrogen from the air. It's a menace to the miners in Cyantia's mountains, at least before they learned to use it to their advantage. The moss appears more brown with the higher concentrations of nitrates and phosphates, and anything that has no green is considered more dangerous than a flask of liquid nitroglycerin in a kindergarten class. The green stuff makes excelent firestarting kindling, though.
