Ithildin

   The magical substance known as Starmoon.
   A magical substance made by the Elves from mithril, that could only be seen by the reflected light of the moon and stars, and even then remained hidden until a magical word was said. Gandalf translated its name as 'starmoon', but 'moon-sparkle' would be a more literal rendering. The designs on the West-gate of Moria were made from this substance.
