Tar is a substance that, when distilled, leaves a concentrated residue called pitch.

The German word “blenden” means “deceptive”, giving a name to the mineral “blende” or “deceptive galena” (it looks like it has lead in it, but it doesn’t). Another name for blende is sphalerite. Greek “sphaleros” also means “deceptive”.

Pitchblende is uranium ore.
