Etymology edit

From Middle English or, oor, blend of Old English ōra (ore, unwrought metal) and ār (brass, copper, bronze), the first a derivate of ear (earth), the second from Proto-West Germanic *aiʀ, from Proto-Germanic *aiz, from Proto-Indo-European *áyos, h₂éyos.

Compare Old Norse eir (brass, copper), German ehern (of metal, of iron), Gothic 𐌰𐌹𐌶 (aiz, ore); also Dutch oer (ferrous hardpan; bog iron ore). Compare Latin aes (bronze, copper), Avestan𐬀𐬌𐬌𐬀𐬵(aiiah), Sanskrit अयस् (áyas, copper, iron).
