Oil of Brick is created by heating pieces of brick to red-hot temperature, and then quenching them in a vessel of olive oil. The brick absorbs the oil, and is then placed in a retort and heated so as to create a distillate of the oil drawn from the brick.


On its planet of origin,Xodus of the Jaezath System, Oil of brick (also called the phiolospher's oil) is used to cure tumors and growths. It is supersticiously believed that pouring a vial of Oil of Brick over an uncut gem about to be cut will bless the gem and "purify" it. 


One vial of Oil of Brick costs twenty standard trade pieces and weighs one pound. So far the only planet it is known to be sold on is Xodus.
