Brawndo: How about transparent?


Which is a real thing these days. Aluminium_oxynitride

No word on if the inventor was helped by an elderly Scottish engineer and a Southern doctor. though.

Well, all you need is something with a finite improbability generator, a Brownian motion producer - say a cup of really hot tea - and input the probability of the metals becoming stronger and bendier on their own.

You don't need the nitrogen. Aluminum oxide exists naturally as sapphire and has been available in a synthetic form for a long time.
