Oh god, I havent had that since foreverXD

But let me get this straight - Thorin is older than Dain, is supposedly one of the oldest dwarves in the Company (if not the oldest, I am cloudy on that), but looks pretty young. I know it’s a design decision to make him look more attractive, but what if…

What if Dwarves get old selectively and don’t always look their age? Like, different types of rock corrode in different ways - compare sandstone to granite to diamond and so on. So what if some Dwarves are made of a ‘harder rock’ and age slower to the point where dying of old age they look barely past their prime; and then there are some Dwarves that start getting grey hair barely out of adolescence, those that are made of 'soft rock’?
