With a touch you temporarily alter a metallic object’s very nature. You can transform the metal-based material from which an object is made into any other metal-based material. The more difficult the transformation, the shorter lived this extract’s effects. A base metal (lead, tin, copper, iron, or steel, for example) that is transformed into any other base metal lasts 10 min./caster level before reverting back to the original metal.

Any metal transformed into a precious metal (silver, gold, or platinum, for example) lasts 1 min./caster level. Any metal transformed into a special substance (mithral, or adamantine, for example) lasts for 1 round/level. Transforming an object in someone’s possession requires a touch attack and subjects the alchemist to attacks of opportunity.
