What is Mandalorian armor made of? Do we even know?

I have watched every "Clone Wars" and "Rebels" Episode like twice or more and I can't remember if it ever says anything like that.

Is there maybe a book that says?

Beskar, also known as Mandalorian iron, was an alloy used in Mandalorian armor, notable for its high tolerance to extreme forms of damage. The metal was durable enough to withstand a direct blaster shot, and could potentially withstand the slash or glancing blow of a lightsaber, though could be penetrated with a direct stab.

    @GarretGang Beskar is in Disney canon. It has been described in some episodes of "Rebels", and IIRC in the recent "Thrawn" books there is a secret base discovered that is mining it for the Empire Jul 16, 2019 at 3:25
  • Good to know. They are at least stealing a little from "Legends"
