As the major creation spell, except as noted here.
This spell functions like minor creation, except that you can also create an object of mineral nature: stone, crystal, metal, or the like. The duration of the created item varies with its relative hardness and rarity, as indicated on the following table.
Hardness and Rarity Examples Duration 1. Includes adamantine, alchemical silver, and mithral. You can't use major creation to create a cold iron item. Vegetable matter 2 hr./level Stone, crystal, base metals 1 hr./level Precious metals 20 min./level Gems 10 min./level Rare metal1 1 round/level
You create a nonmagical, unattended object of nonliving, vegetable matter. The volume of the item created cannot exceed 1 cubic foot per caster level. You must succeed on an appropriate skill check to make a complex item.
Attempting to use any created object as a material component causes the spell to fail.
